Set of 10 tiny polyester prayer flags that are perfect for indoor or outdoor use. Great for altar or meditation spaces!
The flags are the traditional colors of yellow, white, red, blue, and green. A large variety of prayers surround the center image of lungta, a Windhorse. Lungta is also the Tibetan word for 'prayer flag'.

Prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. The prayers inscribed on them protect from destructive evils and obstacles toward the flag planter and all sentient beings.
