Flag of Mongolia

Ratio 1:2
Adoption 1992
Design A vertical bicolour triband of red, blue, and red; charged with the national emblem in yellow, centred on the hoist-side red band. [0]


The current flag was adopted on February 12, 1992, after the transition of Mongolia to a democracy. It is similar to the flag of 1940, except for the removal of the socialist star on top of the Soyombo. [0]


The central blue band is described as the eternal blue sky, while the side red bands represent the ability of Mongolia to thrive in its harsh environment. The Soyombo is a columnar arrangement of abstract and geometric representations of fire, sun, moon, earth, water, and the taijitu or yin-yang symbol. [0]
