The national flag of Bhutan features a dragon (druk in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language) from Bhutanese mythology. This alludes to the Dzongkha name of Bhutan – Druk Yul (འབྲུག་ཡུལ་, "Dragon Country" or "Dragon Kingdom") – as well as the Drukpa Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, which is the dominant religion of Bhutan.

According to Bhutan’s Constitution of 2008, the yellow colour signifies civil tradition and temporal authority as embodied in the Druk Gyalpo, the Dragon King of Bhutan, whose royal garb traditionally includes a yellow kabney (scarf). The orange half of the flag signifies Buddhist spiritual tradition, particularly the Drukpa Kagyü and Nyingma schools.

The dragon spreads equally over the line between the colours. Its placement in the centre of the flag over the dividing line between the flag's two colours signifies the equal importance of both civic and monastic traditions in the Kingdom of Druk (Bhutan) and evokes the strength of the sacred bond between sovereign and people.

The dragon's white colour signifies the purity of inner thoughts and deeds that unite all the ethnically and linguistically diverse peoples of Bhutan. The jewels held in Druk's claws represent Bhutan's wealth and the security and protection of its people, while the dragon's snarling mouth symbolises Bhutanese deities' commitment to the defence of Bhutan.
