Our cotton linen prayer flags are handmade and blessed by Tibetan Buddhist nuns living in India. All proceeds from the sale of them helps to provide food, shelter and education for the nuns.
Each set of prayer flags has five colors representing the different elements: blue for sky, white for clouds, red for space, green for water, and yellow for earth.
The symbols and mantras on prayer flags are sacred, therefore prayer flags should be treated with respect. They should not be placed on the ground. Old prayer flags should be burned. See our blog post on how to hang and dispose of old prayer flags.
There are 3 sizes: small, medium and large. The approximate length of each (including the string on either side) is: 63″ (small), 69″ (medium) and 74″ (large).
