Red area with a golden yellow sun in the center, which has 40 rays; in the center of the sun is a red ring crossed by two times three lines each.

Meaning

The 40 rays of the sun represent the 40 Kyrgyz heroes (or 40 tribes) once united by the legendary national hero Manas under his red flag. Red symbolizes bravery. In the center of the sun is a so-called tunduk, which is supposed to symbolize the roof of the Father's tent. The dome roof shows the wooden poles of a traditional steppe tent (yurt) of the nomadic tribes of the region.
