Prayer flags

Prayer flags are very important in the Tibetan culture. Traditionally prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. You can find prayer flags around the stupas, on mountain pass, roads and inner courts. Usually 25 single flags are connected in one roll. The 5 coloures file repeate 5 times.The colour and the symbols create a prayer or offering that the wind distributes to the world each time it brushes against the flag. The prayers of a flag becomes a permanent part of the universe as the images fade from wind and sun. The tibetan world for horizontal prayer flag is Lung ta, which translates literally as "wind horse".

The single colours symbolise the elements, the four cardinal points and more.
