The Flag of Bhutan features Druk

The Druk (Dzongkha: འབྲུག་) is the “Thunder Dragon” of Bhutanese mythology and a Bhutanese national symbol. A druk appears on the Bhutanese Flag, holding jewels to represent wealth. In the Dzongkha language, Bhutan is called Druk Yul, or Land of Druk, and Bhutanese leaders are called Druk Gyalpo, Dragon Kings – because of Druk. During the Bhutanese mock election in 2007, all four mock parties were called the Druk colour Party[1]. The national anthem of Bhutan, Druk Tsendhen, translates into English as ‘The Kingdom of Druk’.
