In 1991, Kyrgyzstan became the very last of the former Soviet Union republics to secede, and declare independence. Its new flag was adopted on March 3, 1992 and is symbolic of Manas the Noble, a country’s national hero. He merged together 40 tribes that collectively formed the original Kyrgyz nation. That accomplishment is represented by the red field and the golden sun with 40 rays. Centered within that sun is a symbolic Kyrgyz yurt (traditional tent), the traditional home of it nomadic peoples.
