Flag of Kazakhstan

The flag of Kazakhstan, which was adopted after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the proclamation of independence in 1992, consists of pale blue leaf with yellow ornament in the middle. The ornament is composed of silhouette of a steppe eagle (also known as "Berkut"), which carries on its wings a sun with thirty-two sun rays. Moreover, there is a yellow vertical stripe made of traditional national pattern. The azure blue color was characteristics to the original flag and it is a traditional color of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia. The very first national flag was adopted in 1937 and it bore two yellow inscriptions (in Kazakh and Russian). Later, during the Soviet rule, a blue stripe and a yellow hammer and sickle were added.
