Tibetan prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, courage and wisdom. The colours of the prayer flags represent the elements and are arranged from left to right in a specific order: blue (sky), white (wind), red (fire), green (water) and yellow (earth). They are placed outdoors and are designed to move in the wind. The blessings of the prayers and sacred symbols are then carried throughout the world.
Prayer flags are available for purchase at Karuna House with all proceeds going towards our charitable services.
