History

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]

Meaning

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]
