The origin of printing prayer flags in Tibet is said to date back to the 11th century, and the hanging of prayer flags is thought to promote good fortune and to dispel danger.

In Tibet, they are called Lung-ta or Windhorse, named for the traditional character who carries the prayers to the universe. On his back are the triple gems of Buddhism , Buddha (teacher), Dharma (teachings) Sangha (monastic followers). The five flag colors represent the five elements: Blue - earth, White - water, Red - fire, Saffron - infinite space and Green - wind.

Enjoy the slow fading of color as they hang in the elements. To dispose of old flags with respect, please burn them.

Each flag is 11'' high by 8'' wide (27 cm x 20 cm), and the entire length is four feet (120 cm).
