The flag of Bhutan has been used since the 19th century, with a few variations.

The flag is divided in the middle with the upper field in yellow-orange and the lower in red-orange. In the middle of the flag, stands a white dragon. The yellow-orange is the color of the king and the red-orange is the color of Buddhism.

The fact that the flag is divided symbolizes the spiritual and worldly power in the country. The dragon on the flag represents the name of the country in the language Dzongkha (Drukyul, which translates to "The Land of the Thunder Dragon).

The white color is a symbol of purity. There are only two national flags with dragons on them, those of Bhutan and Wales. The flag's proportions are 2:3.
