Probably. Double edged is a bit unusual.hairpin lamination is fairly common in the area in older blades especially. The dragon is the National symbol of Bhutan.

The Bhutanese Flag is below

The king carries a much larger single edged sword version, called a patag, or patang. He carries it on his right side as a symbol of his rank. (see below)
