Tibetan Prayer Flag - 20 Flags in 5 Colours - 8" x 10"

In Tibet, the tradition of hanging flags began more than 2000 years ago. At that time the country was ruled by war lords who carried their banners into battles. The native people, however, made their own flags to honour the nature gods of Bon, their shamanistic religion. They used colours of the five elements: blue for sky or space, white for air or clouds, red for fire, green for water and yellow for earth. They hung the flags over mountain passes and rivers to benefit all who would pass underneath.

Every time you look at the flags, let them remind you to continue to send out your own prayers for world peace, kindness, and generosity. As you do do, you will also benefit from their blessings.

This prayer flag has 20 flags in all 5 colours, and each individual one measures 8" x 10".

The entire strand measures approximately 16'.
