Prayer Flags


My brother took this picture of our prayer flags we have hanging up at our cabin that my parents got in Nepal.

Prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom and the colors symbolize:
  • Blue (symbolizing sky/space)
  • White (symbolizing air/wind)
  • Red (symbolizing fire)
  • Green (symbolizing water)
  • Yellow (symbolizing earth)
