Prayer Flag: Om
Fair Trade from Nepal
Size: 2.5"sq flag x 8'l string
Paper prayer flags can be hung virtually anywhere! Hang our mini versions across your computer screens, in the car or anywhere you need a little dose of compassion. Longer flags are great for use on mantles, in windows, entryways and more; anyplace you want to create sacred space in your life.
Traditional Prayer flags are made using hand-carved woodblocks and water soluble ink on cloth; wind blows the prayers though the universe and rains carry the prayers away to the earth. When these traditional flags fade, the flags are then burned and a new set is strung.
The five colors of the flags represent the harmony of five elements in balance; blue=sky and space, white=air and wind, red=fire, green=water and yellow=earth.
