There is no record on the origin and history of the National Flag and National Anthem of the country. However, some of the people who were directly involved in their development are still alive. Dasho Shingkhar Lam, Dasho Sangay Dorji and Aku Tongmi enabling the authors recorded important facts of these two important national symbols. The availability of only a few documents that have not been compiled resulted in many inconsistencies and variations in the descriptions of these important national symbols. For instance, there are many versions of English translations of the National Anthem. Therefore, there was the need for authentic records of descriptions, and accurate translations. This booklet is a small contribution of the Centre of Bhutan Studies to disseminate information on these two national symbols.
