Events of 1992

February 12: Mongolia removed the socialist star from its flag when its new constitution came into effect.
February 14: Karakalpakstan, an autonomous republic in Uzbekistan, adopted a flag which closely resembled the Uzbek national flag.
February 19: Turkmenistan adopted its first post-independence flag. The red stripe on the left side of the flag was emblazoned with five carpet patterns, one from each of the major Turkmen tribes.
March 3: Following an independence referendum that was boycotted by the country's Serbian community, Bosnia and Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia.
March 3: Kyrgyzstan adopted its first post-independence flag. The central symbol depicted the sky as viewed through the roof of a yurt.
March 15: A United Nations transitional authority was established in Cambodia under a temporary neutral flag. The old red blue and gold flag of the State of Cambodia continued to be flown within the country during the transition.
March 24: Adygea, an autonomous republic in Russia, adopted a flag based on the old national flag of Circassia.
March 27: Bosnia and Herzegovina provisionally adopted its first post-independence flag, depicting the coat of arms of the medieval Kingdom of Bosnia. The flag was never accepted by the country's Serbian community and would eventually be changed after the signing of the Dayton accords.
April 7: Albania removed the socialist star from its flag.
April 27: Afghanistan provisionally adopted a new flag.
April 27: Yugoslavia removed the socialist star from its flag.
April 29: The republic of Chuvashia in Russia adopted a flag depicting a "tree of life".
May 11: Brazil added four more stars (representing Amapá, Rondônia, Roraima, and Tocantins) to its national flag.
May 29: The Torres Strait Islanders, an indigenous group of Australia, adopted a flag. The central emblem was a dhari headdress. It would soon become an official flag of Australia, alongside the Aboriginal flag.
June 4: Kazakhstan adopted its first post-independence flag, depicting a golden-eagle in flight on top of a sky blue background.
June 7: Comoros adopted a new flag with the crescent and stars pointing upwards.
August 11: The former Yugoslav republic of Macedonia adopted its first post-independence flag, depicting the Vergina Sun, a decorative motif in ancient Greek art which had been found some fifteen years earlier on the purported coffin of King Philip of Macedon. The adoption of the flag was immediately controversial in neighbouring Greece, and Macedonia was forced to abandon the symbol under diplomatic pressure only three years later. Despite its short official lifespan, the flag remained popular with Macedonian nationalists and continues to be flown to this day.
August 25: Paraguay changed the ratio of its flag from 37:20 to 5:3 and modified the design of its seal.

September 3: Mari El, an autonomous republic in Russia, adopted a tricolour flag depicting an ancient solar symbol in dark red.
September 18: Tuva, an autonomous republic in Russia, adopted a flag. The Y-shape represented the course of the Yensei river through the republic.
September 22: Cape Verde adopted a completely new flag to symbolize a break with its former socialist policies and a closer connection with the west. The ten golden stars represented the ten main islands of the nation.
September 24: Crimea, an autonomous republic in Ukraine, adopted a flag.
October 5: The Council of All Lands selected a flag for the Mapuche Nation. The central emblem was a cultrun drum with symbols depicting the sun, the moon, the stars, and the four cardinal directions.
October 14: The Russian republic of Sakha, also known as Yakutia, adopted a flag depicting the sun over the taiga.
October 30: Kalmykia, an autonomous republic in Russia, adopted a flag with a fire symbol in the centre. It would be replaced less than a year later.
November 24: Tajikistan adopted its first post-independence flag, which closely resembled the flags of Iran and Kurdistan. The broad white stripe represented cotton — the country's main agricultural export.
December 2: Afghanistan replaced the Islamic inscriptions on its transitional flag with the country's traditional mosque emblem.
