Accordin tae the Uzbek embassy:
The State flag o the Republic o Uzbekistan wis approved at the Seventh Extraordinary Session o the Supreme Council o the Republic o Uzbekistan, on November, 18, 1991.
The State flag an its symbols portray the heestorical links wi states which hae existit in the past wi'in the borders o modern Uzbekistan an embodies in itself the naitional an cultural traditions o the republic.
1. The color blue on the flag is a seembol o the eternal sky an life-givin water, which reflect the essence o life. In seembolic leid it represents guidness, wisdom, honesty, glory an loyalty. Consequently, the color o Amir Temur’s state flag wis also blue.
2. The color white on the flag, seembolizin holy peace, harmonizes wi the illumination o the day an the sources o licht in the universe. The color white is a seembol o purity, transparency, innocence, the cleanliness f desires an dreams, an a strivin for inner beauty.

4. The red stripes ar tributaries o the pouer o life that flows in oor bodies.
5. The depiction o a youthful crescent moon is connectit wi oor heestorical traditions. At the same time it is a seembol o the independence which we hae obtained.
