Flag of Bhutan 🇧🇹

Flag of Bhutan

The flag of Bhutan 🇧🇹 reflects the country´s name in the local language (Druk Yul), which means "country of the thunder dragon". This name is linked to the Buddhist monastery Druk, which was reportedly founded in the country in the 13th century. The diagonal divides the flag into yellow and orange part. Yellow color refers to the secular side of life, whereas orange indicates the strength of the Buddhist religion in the country. White dragon stands for purity and the jewelry in his talons refer to the great wealth of the country. The dragon stares away from the left part of the flag and his body copies the diagonal line. The current form of the flag was adopted in 1960, however is has been used since the 19th century in a slightly modified form.
