Bhutanese Vertical Prayer flags for hoisting
Prayer flags are indeed one of the appealing characteristic of a Bhutanese tradition and mythology. It is an angelic representation of the Buddhist sculpture and art often with a believe that well-being and happiness flourishes where it flutters. This flags are explicit with a detailed woodblock prints on high quality cotton cloth. The 5 colors of flags (blue, white, red, green, yellow) represent the 5 basic elements: space, air, fire, water, earth. Each color has special Buddhist symbols, prayers and mantras for a particular purpose: Blue - Health & Longevity, White– Karma Purification, Red – Wish Fulfillment, Green –Compassion, Yellow – Overcoming Obstacles. They are displayed in front of important places, such as monasteries and palaces, and one must be formally dressed to enter these places. These flags represent special prayers.
The flags don't come with fasteners to secure therefore, we recommend either sewing a fastener to hoist on metal poles or use staples for wooden poles.
