The National Flag ( from www.fotw.net)


Kyrgyzstan is divided into seven provinces (oblast (область) administered by appointed governors. The capital, Bishkek, and the second large city Osh are administratively independent cities with a status equal to a province. Each province comprises a number of districts (raions). Rural communities, consisting of up to 20 small settlements, have their own elected mayors and councils.

Kyrgyzstan has no true heraldic tradition, most 'arms' are actually logos or symbols.

Arms of towns and cities :

Balykchy (Балыкчы)
Bishkek (Бишкек)
Shopokov (Шопоков)
