The flag of Çayırhan (photo) is white with the municipality's emblem. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".
The emblem features a miner's lamp, a red lightning representing the power plant and waves representing Sarıyer man-made lake.
The Çayırhan Power Plant supplies 1,800,000,000 KW-hr of electric power into the national grid each year while utilizing poor-quality lignite from local mines. Çayırhan is a good example of successful privatization in the local market. Plant thermal efficiency is high, availability is high, and labor productivity is also high. It is situated at the local indigenous mine mouth lignite reserves. Cayirhan had a wide range of rehabilitation program covering Instrumentation and controls as well as upgrading flue gas cleaning and desulphurization systems.
To meet our country’s increasing energy demands, the Turkish Electricity Authority’s power plants fire poor quality lignite of low calorific value, high ash and high moisture content, which can not be utilized elsewhere. This operation introduces environmental hazards which have to be avoided. Under the current strict environmental regulations, the Authority considers this their major problem to solve, - avoiding environmental pollution while producing electricity from economic fuel sources. Due to the high sulphur content of the fuel from in its mine, Çayırhan Power Plant was selected for the installation of first Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD for short) System in year 1987.
