Flags, Clouds & Mountains

Over high mountain passes, across wide valley floors, the wind, communicator to all, carries the prayers of the Buddhist people. The cloth flags are printed in five colours, each symbolize one of the Five Elements; blue (sky/space), white (wind/air), red (fire), green (water) and yellow (earth).

Sacred Mantras are printed onto the flags with usually a horse in the centre. The horse being a symbol of speed and of the element air, is known as Wind Horse and aids the flow of energy of the Mantras on the wind, bringing Joy, Happiness and good health to all people throughout the world.
