The flag of East Turkestan, also known as Kök Bayraq (كۆك بايراق Көк Байрақ, Blue Banner), was adopted by the East Turkestan government on November 12, 1933.[1] It is a symbol of the East Turkestan independence movement.[2]

The flag resembles the Turkish flag, including a crescent and star historically representing Tengrism.[citation needed] The color blue represents the Gökturks, a group of ancient nomadic Turkic peoples. Gökturks translates to "Celestial Turks".
