Flag for Lake Issyk Kul - The Hot Sea of Heaven

The Hot Sea of Heaven is located in Tian Shan Mountains in Central Asia, specifically in the nation of Kyrgyzstan.  The flag uses the colours black, white, orange, yellow, and purple.  It essentially shows a reflection of the nights sky upon the Milky Way Galaxy.  The moon is a crescent, yet its unlit portion is covering up a portion of a star in the Milky Way.  The mountains are coloured different colours to reflect the high mountain ranges. 

Lake Issyk Kul is essentially the 'Lake Titicaca' of the Old World, or rather Lake Titicaca is the Issyk Kul of the Americas?  This lake is saline and never freezes.
