Tibet - Tibetan Prayer Flags

Additional Images

Fair trade

These flags are flown on Tibetan temples, houses and mountain passes. If you have followed the Everest expeditions you will have seen pictures of the flags flying at base camp. The flags are flown in multiple sets of five colors: Blue for sky, White for cloud, Red for fire, Green for water and Yellow for earth. Each flag is printed with a series of Tibetan mantra chants such as "Om Mani Padme" and "Om Men Rimoshi-Ne." The flags we sell have pictures of temples and Buddhas. In the center can be found the twelve Tibetan astrological signs.

Tibetan Prayer flags are purposely not protected from fading. In fact for the Tibetans the replacement and renewal of the flags is an important part of their ritual significance and ceremonial use. All prayer flags are not of equal quality and do differ in length slightly from each other 

With respect when finished with your prayer flags, please place them on a hot fire to burn, do not put in the rubbish bin, these are religous items and deserve respect.
