  • Hi Everybody, Welcome back to Flag/Fan Friday

  • Hope you like the Mongolia episode. As you know,

  • This is the part where I kind of fix the mistakes that were in the video, or I talked about things that didn't quite make it

  • into the video. For one, I accidentally used the wrong picture for Genghis Khan

  • I used Kublai Khan his grandson

  • and speaking of which, I feel like I didn't even really talk too much about Genghis Khan throughout the video. Granted yes,

  • there's a lot of controversy that comes with him, a lot of his actions were brutal.

  • But at the same time, he really changed up the entire game for an entire content

  • Which is kind of why he's seen as like an iconic figure

  • He was born with the name Tim Wu gene and he later became the leader of the board G King clan

  • it wasn't until he actually United all of the other tribes and clans around him that he actually got the title of Genghis Khan which

  • Means something like Universal King, and yes

  • He was known for fighting in a lot of violent battles persian city of merv was like the largest killing ground

  • But at the same time he was also a very innovative geopolitical strategist

  • He even consulted a lot of clergy from different religions such as Buddha's Hindus Christians Muslims and to this day his burial ground is unknown

  • Because all the people that buried him were ordered to be killed. Also, there's some controversy behind the Buddhism in Mongolia

  • Some people will say that Buddhism was kind of like brought in as a way to control the population

  • From growing to much as in about a third of the entire population at one point where Buddhist monks that were celibate

  • There's probably a few other things I could have mentioned

  • But we really don't have a lot of time and we got to get into the flag thing. So without further ado

  • Dude we went from Monaco the most densely packed nation in the world to Mongolia the most sparsely populated and on top of that they

  • Like at one point ruled half of the world

  • Anyway the flag

  • the flag is a vertical tricolour with two red bands on each side with the blue in the middle on the left band lies the

  • Soyo mole symbol we'll get to this in a bit blue stripe symbolizes the eternal blue sky

  • whereas the red stripe stand for the nation's eternal thriving the so yomo symbol is a

  • Geometric image arranged in a column that represents the elements of significance to the nation the fire

  • symbolizes growth health and success as well as the past present and future the Sun and Moon symbolized the Mongolian nation existing into eternity the

  • Two triangles alluding to the points of an arrow or spear pointing downwards to indicate the defeat of interior and exterior enemies two horizontal

  • Rectangles symbolizing honesty justice and the people of Mongolia the Taiji symbol more commonly yin-yang

  • Illustrates the complementarianism of men and woman and finally the two vertical rectangles imitating the walls of a fort

  • Representing unity and strength keep in mind prior to this flag

  • They had the Socialist Republic flag before they switched over to a liberal democracy

  • And also the SOI elbow is kind of like a pan

  • Mangal symbol that applies to all Mongols across different regions in the world not just in Mongolia

  • You could see it on the booty at Republic of Russia's flag or the Augean Borya okrug flag

  • And they also had a bunch of other flags in the past especially during war times of the 20th century

  • It kind of changed up a lot of stuff

  • but the one thing that just kind of always stuck was the soy elbow symbol and with that being said now we move on to

  • the emblem the image contains a disc surrounded by a tomb in nasaan pattern which stands for

  • Eternity all around a blue field representing the sky on top lies the cintamani which are the three Buddhist jewels

  • Which in Mongolian folklore grants wishes below the emblem is a green mountain range

  • indicative of the natural landscape on top is the wheel of Dharma

  • Again, another Buddhist symbol draped by a haddad or traditional scarf finally in the center

  • We reached the wind horse, which is a symbol of the human soul in shamanistic tradition

  • and it also appears in Buddhist folklore in the center of the horse lies two soy mo symbol once again marking the identity of the

  • Mongolian people and also keep in mind in the past. They also had a bunch of other different emblems

  • Some of them were drastically different especially the ones during the Socialist Republic years

  • but overall the one thing that just kind of stuck out again was the soy mo symbol so if you're gonna take anything away from

  • This episode this toy Yan PO is like just the most important symbol for Mongolia, I guess

  • All right, so that's just about it. And that means you know what time it is it's time for geography mail time
