The flag of Bitlis (photo) is white with the municipality's emblem in the middle. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".
The five minarets recall a famous Turkish folk song, Bitlis'te Beş Minare (Five Minarest in Bitlis; performed by Oyalı Yazma and Gamze Can), which starts with "Five minarets in Bitlis / Come closer boy come closer..."
