The Kazakhstan flag was appointed on January 24, 1996, and was the result of a national contest. The blue color represents sky, water and also cultural and ethnic unity. The sun is pictured and symbolizes life and energy. There are 32 rays surrounding the sun and these represent abundance and prosperity. Koshkar-muiz, (horns of the ram) Kazakhstan's national ornamental pattern, is on the left side of the national flag.
Kazakhstan flags are made in America and are 100% durable nylon, designed to stand up well to sun and wind effects. Finished with canvas heading and solid brass grommets.
