THE LEGENDARY BIRD-GARUDA HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS THE EMBLEM OF THE MONGOLIAN CAPITAL. ACCORDING TO MONGOLIAN BELIEFS, THE GARUDA SYMBOLIZES COURAGE AND HONESTLY.

THE GARUDA BIRD IS DEPICTED HOLDING IN ITS RIGHT HAND KEY, WHICH SYMBOLIZES PROSPERITY AND OPENESS, AND ON THE LEFT LOTUS FLOWER, WHICH IS A SYMBOL OF EQUALITY AND PURITY. IT IS DEPICTED HOLDING IN ITS FEET A SNAKE, WHICH MEANS THAT EVERYTHING EVIL AND BAD WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. ULAANBAATAR NOW ALSO HAS ITS OWN, BANNER WHICH IS SKY BLUE IN COLOR AND THE CENTER OF THE FLAG IS DEPICTED THE GARUDA BIRD.
