New flag and COA of Astana, Kazakhstan you can see on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astana (original source: http://www.astana.kz/kazakhstan-symbols.html)
Tomislav Šipek, 24 December 2008

New COA of Astana adopted July, 5, 2008 by Maslikhat (city council) of Astana. President of Kazakhstan N.Nazarbaev took part in disigning of the COA.
Victor Lomantsov, 30 December 2008

The (light) blue and yellow rayed background reminds of the Soviet Air Force flag (and Russian). A connection would not be unimaginable.

[former city flag Astana] after "Wikipedia"; redrawn by Valentin Poposki

The Wikipedia shows the former flag [before 2008] of the City of Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astana. However, it seems that this is the photo of the actual flag, so I tried to make a reconstruction.

Baikonur

[Baikonur flag] found by Olivier Touzeau at http://www.rakhattv.kz/show_news.asp?NewsID=9124

2, June, 2003, during the "Up to the Minute" news program this morning they showed a close-up of the flag flying at the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The flag looked green, with a crescent moon facing up and slightly to the left. There was writing of some sort around the moon, but what language is was I am not certain. However, at the hoist, in white letters stacked one letter over another to the bottom of the hoist (with space between the edges of the flag) was BAIKONUR ().

[Baikonur flag] by Chrystian Kretowicz

[Baikonur coat of arms] by Chrystian Kretowicz

The official emblem of Baikonur was established by the decree of the Head of Administration (Nr.405 dated November 1998) In the center of the vertical axis there is a main image of the lift-off of the spaceship and the human hands. The composition introduced recognizable objects, symbolizing scientific research in the opening of the sacrament of the universe. Rockets into space hands of a man resembling the construction of a launching pad - a symbol of Man - the creator of space technology, science and daring work, fascinating space and protecting our globe from environmental and other crises. Stylized in a tulip fire - a symbol of local nature. Kolorit emblem is based on dark blue, light blue and ocher colors.
The flag of Baikonur was introduced on April 27, 2001 by the decree of the Head of Administration Nr.145. Flag of Baikonur is a rectangular cloth with a blue image of two hands, of which the background of the starry sky and the Earth, the spacecraft will start, and the inscription "Baikonur" in gold letters. The width of the flag to its length is 2:3.

The rocket closely resembles a Proton heavy booster (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton_%28rocket%29; whose only lanch site is Baikonur).

Tarbagatay audany (Tarbagatay county)

[district flag] by Valentin Poposki

IMHO, on web-page http://www.tarbagatay.freenet.kz/index.php (in Kazakh language) displayed absolutely not a flag, but a logo. We have no base to think, that it is a real flag of Tarbagatay audany (county) in East-Kazakhstan Region of Republic of Kazakhstan.
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 12 August 2005

I don't agree with opinion of Mr.Revnitsev for several reasons.
1. Kazakhstan rayons and cities don't use logos as their official symbols
2. Coat of arms are in different shape and composition
3. This is obviously made under half soviet half modern kazakh proto-heraldic influence
4. Image file name "logo.jpg" doesn't mean this is logo. I've found thousands flags, coat of arms, crests and seals with file name "logo"
I am still on my opinion that this is flag!
Valentin Poposki, 12 August 2005

I am ready be agree with you in this question only in one of three cases:
1. If we shall have the document on adoption of this flag;
2. If we shall manage to find a photo, which show this figure as a flag on a flagstaff;
3. If we shall manage to find a website, which have inscription in any language "It is a flag of Tarbagatay".
Until this time this figure is not a flags for me. It is only a simple picture.

The City of Ust'-Kamenogorsk/Oskemen changed its flag and coat of arms. The design remains the same, but the coat of arms (which is on the flag, too), now is bilingual. You can see the image of the new flag on city's official website http://www.oskemen.kz/kz/city1.htm.
