The flag of Mongolia (Mongolian: Монгол улсын төрийн далбаа, translit. Mongol ulsyn töriin dalbaa, lit. 'State flag of Mongolia') is a vertical tricolour with two reds at in sides and a blue in the middle, with the Soyombo symbol defacing the left red stripe. The blue stripe is described as the eternal blue sky and the red stripes symbolise thriving forever. The Soyombo symbol is a geometric abstraction that represents fire, sun, moon, earth, water, and a round shape as dualist aspect. The current flag was adopted on February 12, 1992, after the transition of Mongolia to a liberal democracy. It is similar to the flag of 1940, except for the removal of the socialist star on top of the Soyombo.
