The Kingdom of Sikkim had used several flags during its history. They all contained a Buddhist khorlo prayer wheel with the gankyil as the central element.

A more simple design was adopted in 1967 because of the difficulty in duplication of the complex flag. The border became solid red, the pictograms were removed and the wheel was redesigned.

With the admission of Sikkim to the Republic of India and with the abolition of the monarchy, the flag lost its official status in 1975.

Common connections of colors and personality

Color preference can reveal aspects of a person’s personality and emotional state, but it is important to note that these connections are not always absolute or universal. Different cultural and individual experiences can also shape color preferences.
