(This page shows an image of the flag in a quite unusual way: the actual image contains only the emblem, being the 2:3 white background made by an HTML table around it.) The emblem is describable as a coat of arms: Per pale azure a sun or and vert three houses argent lined or per pale, on a pale gules the lettering "ᡄᠯᡄᠰᡐᡉᡉ᠅" (mongol script for "Elestüü⁘"); for crown a buddhist pagoda roof gules charged with a lotus (as on the republic’s flag) argent lined or above the lettering "ЭЛСТ · ЭЛИСТА" (cyrillic script for "Êlst · Êlista"); all edges of the crown and shield, including the fess’s edges, lined or.
António Martins and Lewis Nowitz, 12 Nov 2005, and Andrew West, 10 Jun 2007
