Mongolia's national flag is a vertical triband with a red stripe on each side and a blue stripe in the center. In the center of the leftmost stripe, the flag includes the Soyombo sign, a geometric abstraction representing fire, sun, moon, earth, and water, as well as the Taijitu symbol of yin and yang. The blue stripes signify the everlasting blue sky, while the red stripes indicate the yearning for everlasting riches.
The present flag was chosen on January 12, 1992, and the official color guidelines were established on July 8, 2011. Prior to 1992, throughout the final 47 years of the Mongolian People's Republic, the flag had a communist star above the Soyombo emblem. Dodiin Choidog, an artist, created the flag.
Despite the Chinese government's objection to public displays of Mongolian national or cultural symbols due to separatist fears, it is standard practice among Mongolians in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region to show the Mongolian flag.
