This set of prayer flags includes 5 small prayer flags spelling PEACE when spread out. Each flag is a different color to represent the five elements (blue-sky/space, white-wind, red-fire, green-eater, yellow-earth) and measures 5x5 inches. For centuries Tibetans have hung prayer flags on mountain tops, homes, stupas and temples. The prayers written on the flags are released out to the universe as the wind blows through them. As the images and prayers fade from the flags, they become a part of the universe. New flags are often hung on auspicious days and during celebrations. Please let me know if you have any questions.
