A delightful addition to any garden or Buddhist centre. These large colourful prayer flags carry the Windhorse & 21 Tara prints.  These flags are made up of 5 coloured squares blue, white, green, red and yellow . They are fairly traded from a small Tibetan Refugee Family business in South India.  The flags are  hand block printed and sewn using treadle or hand powered sewing machines, as electric power is limited. 

Each colour square has 2 prints of either Windhorse  or Tara design.   Traditionally the five elements are represented by the colour of the flags, Blue=space, White=water, Red=fire, Green=air & wind, Yellow=earth.

The flag measurements are approximately 1.5 meters (5ft) high & 47 cm (1.5ft) wide. The edges of the small coloured tags on the prayer flags are un-hemmed, as this is part of the Buddhist philosophy of impermanence and thus the flag are expected to loose both their colour and start to deteriorate at the edges.

I am very pleased with the flags. They are well sewn, good material, strong ties, bright colours and clear prints. They are better than I had hoped for and it was good to find them in an independent store, not Amazon! They look great and flutter without getting tangled
