In 1900 russian settlers came to Kyrgyzstan and because of all the russian colonists, the Russians got the best farmland. In 1916 the Kyrgyz people were forced to join the soviet union. In 1936 The Russians forced the kyrgyz people to give up their farming culture and traditions and use the Russians ideas. In 1991 Kyrgyzstan joined the Independent states. They became a constitutional republic, like the US. The first Kyrgyz president was Askar Akayev.

The three main languages of kyrgyzstan are Kyrgyz, Uzbek, and Russian.

Flag

The Kyrgyzstan flag is red with a yellow sun in the middle. Inside the sun there is a red circle or ring with two sets of three lines crossing it. This represents 'Tunduk' the top of a kyrgyz yurt. There are forty rays on the sun that represent the forty original kyrgyz tribes. The red on this flag symbolizes bravery and the sun represents wealth and peace.
