Bhutan’s National Flag is divided diagonally: the upper diagonal is yellow and the lower orange. Separating the two diagonals is a white dragon facing away from the hoist side. Yellow signifies the secular tradition and authority of the King and orange the Buddhist spiritual tradition. The dragon represents the name of the kingdom: Druk Yul or Land of the Thunder Dragon. The dragon signifies purity and the jewels held in the dragon’s claws represent Bhutan’s wealth and security. The dragon’s snarling mouth symbolizes the Bhutanese guardian deities’ ferocious commitment to protect the nation.
