The flag of Kazakhstan features a blue background with a sun with 32 rays in the center, which represents prosperity, and a steppe eagle in gold with extended wings, symbolizing power, freedom, and flight. The vertical stripe on the left side of the flag is light blue and has the national ornamentation “koshkar-muiz” (the horns of the ram) in gold. The flag’s design reflects the country’s identity as a land of abundant natural resources, including its vast steppes and rich mineral deposits.
