The red, blue, yellow, white and green buddhist prayer flags represent elements like air, fire, water and earth. White symbolises air, red is fire. Green is water, yellow is earth, and blue is wind. They also represent directions – North, South, East, West and Center.
‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ meaning:
Om- The sacred syllable
Padme – Lotus
Hum – Spirit of enlightenment
Buddhist Prayer Flags Should Never Be Still
The reason why they are put high above the roof is so that they flutter in the wind. It is said that they emit positive spiritual vibrations and that the prayers are carried by the wind like silent prayers.
Colour Fading From The Flags Is Considered Auspicious
This means that the prayers were carried by the breeze – fading colours are a sign of it. Blessing everyone.
Actual colours may vary. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor, hand phone screen, laptop or tab have different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. We try our best to show our products as life-like as possible, but please understand that the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor or screen.
