Full Name:Republic of Kazakhstan
The State Flag of the Republic of Kazakhstan is a light blue field with a gold sun with 32 rays above the silhouette of a soaring golden steppe eagle in its center. The hoist side displays a national ornamental pattern “koshkar-muiz” (the horns of the ram) in gold
The solid blue background of the flag means piece and unity of people living in Kazakhstan. The colour of sky implies infinity and purity.
The sun — as well as being the source of life and energy, was a symbol of progress and movement for nomads. It was the tool they had to measure the time. Under the law of heraldry, the silhouette of the sun is a symbol of well-being and abundance,the sun has 32 beams, each shaped like a grain — again the grain being the basis for abundance and prosperity.
The eagle symbolizes the power of the state and astuteness. For people living in the steppe the eagle is a symbol of independence, freedom and aspiration as well as the symbol of strength to overcome any obstacles and difficulties.
The national ornament on the left, along the line of the staff, identifies the culture and traditions of Kazakhstan.
