Nepal adopted their current flag in 1962 although the original design is over 2,000 years old. It is the only non-quadrilateral national flag. The blue border stands for peace and harmony. Red, Nepal’s national color, represents the people’s brave spirit. The 2 triangles symbolize the Himalaya Mountains and Nepal’s 2 main religions, Hinduism and Buddhism. The celestial bodies represent permanence. The moon represents calm while the sun signals fierce resolve.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
