Today's flag, designed by Oyun-ool Sat.
The original is bronze, from the eighth century BC, and is 25 centimetres in diameter.
The early nomads fashioned this breast ornament to adorn a horse's harness and is
one of the earliest known works of Scythian art. This image is a poor one-colour
representation of the original, which is under lock and key in a Kyzyl museum.
The current coat of arms of the Republic of Tuva strongly resembles images used earlier in
the 20th century.
Here's a nifty crest created for Friends of Tuva.
