    Flag of Kyrgyzstan

    The emblem consists of a sun rising above a mountainous scene resting on the shoulders of a hawk.

    Cotton and wheat circle the border of the emblem, with the name of the country scripted above and below.

    The lighter shade of blue is symbolic to the country as the color of courage and generosity. The wheat, cotton and rising sun are leftover elements of the USSR.
