Kyrgyzstan: Flag

Today I got my first postcard of 2019. It came from Kyrgyzstan.

The card shows the Flag of Kyrgyzstan. The Flag of Kyrgyzstan was adopted in 1992, seven months after Kyrgyzstan's declaration of independence. It consists of a red field with a yellow sun that contains a depiction of the roof of a Kyrgyz yurt. The red colour and the number of the rays of the sun both refer to Manas, the national hero of Kyrgyzstan.


On the backside is a postmark from the 72nd Salon Philatélique d'Automne in Paris showing Ivan Tourguenev.
Stamp:
Bridges (from set of two) (issued 22-06-2018)


Thank You very much William!
