Our prayer flags are made by a Tibetan community in Nepal. Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Hang your prayer flags indoors or outside with intention and a prayer or mantra. It is believed the prayers and mantras will be lifted by the wind to spread good will and compassion.
Each flag depicts the lungta, or wind horse, which Tibetans believe combines the strength of the horse and the speed of the wind to carry prayers to the heavens and all pervading space. Each color represents an element. The color blue is symbolic of sky and space, white symbolizes air, red represents the element of fire, green symbolizes water, and yellow represents earth. When these elements are in balance, according to Tibetan medicine, health and harmony may be achieved. The mantras promote compassion, good fortune and long life.
The flags fade due to exposure to the elements and new ones are often hung alongside the old, as a metaphor to cycle of life. Because the symbols and mantras on the prayer flags are sacred, they are treated with respect and not placed on the ground or used inappropriately. If old flags are removed, they are traditionally burned. The best time to put up new prayer flags is in the morning on sunny, windy days.
