  • Everybody welcome back to flag / fan Friday

  • Hope you liked the Kyrgyzstan episode, so you know the deal before we go into that little intro song thing

  • I got to kind of fix up the small things that I made mistakes on in the episode surprisingly

  • Surprisingly, I don't think there were a lot

  • I got a lot of feedback from the kyrkgz subscribers until like yeah, who's overall pretty good

  • But there were still a few for one

  • I said the Epic of Manas was the longest epic poem in all the world if we're just counting the number of lines and verses

  • Then kind of technically - is the longest one it has about half a million

  • But if we're talking about overall word length then the Sanskrit

  • Mahabharata from India and the Epic of King Gesar are from Tibet are longer even though they each only have about

  • 200,000 lines and verses and so you know you decide also I believe this image that I use for cutter coal is not actually cut

  • a call its choppin otta

  • Which is a resort on ecq lake?

  • They're both on the same lake, but you know is just different picture and yes

  • I am fully aware that in the friend zone the animation included a flag of Switzerland to symbolize medical aid

  • It's funny because I literally had this discussion with Ken the day before we uploaded. I'm like Ken you used a Swiss flag

  • You know we're gonna get a lot of comments on this and we did so for the 19 thousand four hundred and eighty fifth time

  • He's got some great dance moves so anyway the flag the flag of Kyrgyzstan is a red banner with a Yellow Sun

  • Containing 40 uniformly spaced rays crossed by two sets of three lines yes

  • I am fully aware that it looks like the Xbox logo, okay like

  • 9422 of you guys already wrote that to me prior to making this video the three cross lines are actually supposed to symbolize the upper

  • cross rods or Duke of the sealing center of a yurt the traditional nomadic housing structure of kyrgyzstan this and return

  • symbolizes the origin of life unity and home the Sun stands for peace and prosperity

  • Whereas the 40 Rays are said to represent the original 40 tribes of?

  • Kyrgyzstan, which were all united under the national hero - and the red stands for

  • Bravery and valor sorry no animation this week hey. I don't make the rules of flags

  • I just report it now keep in mind this flag was actually adopted in 1992 after independence

  • And it was actually kind of like their first real

  • Sovereign state flag prior to this care Gaston was pretty much under every version of the Russian Empire and the Soviet empire after the Soviets

  • They were the Kyrgyz SSR which they use this flag and for seven months after independence

  • They used the same flag

  • But just without the hammer and sickle as they were trying to figure out a new flag for their country, but yeah

  • This was kind of like the real first Kilgus flag alright moving on now the national emblem

  • Which is interesting because it has a lot of blue in it the emblem contains a blue disc flanked with wheat and cotton sheaves on?

  • The side with the tian shan mountains in front of a Rising Sun in the background

  • With EC kul lake at the bottom in front of everything is a Falcom or auction mark with wings spreading symbolizing freedom

  • generosity and vigilance on the top and bottom you find the words written in Cyrillic Kyrgyz Republic caste or

  • Kilgus Republic now keep in mind this emblem was actually just adopted in

  • 2016 prior to that they had another emblem that was almost completely identical except the colors were just a little off shaded oh

  • Yeah, and during Soviet times
