Bhutan Nation Flag
Divided diagonally, the National Flag of Bhutan have a white dragon in the center of the flag. One half of the flag is orange symbolizing the spiritual power in the country that is controlled primarily by Drukpas monasteries and Buddhist religious practices. The other half of the flag is saffron yellow representing the temporal power in the country and the secular authority of the dynasty.
Bhutanese people call their country as ‘Druk yul’ or ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’. They believe that thunder is actually the voices of the dragon roaring. Thus the dragon in the center of the flag or ‘Druk’ has deep association with the country itself.
The dragon is snarling and clutches jewels in its claws. The jewels in dragon’s claws represent the wealth and prosperity of the nation. The snarling dragon represents the male and female deities who are always protecting the country, its King and the people from harm and are inimical to outside forces that are threatening them.
