The Tibetan flag, also called the “snow lion flag” and the “Free Tibet flag” was introduced by the 13th Dalai Lama in 1912 and used by the Tibetan military until 1959. It was designed with the help of a Japanese priest and reflects the Japanese Rising Sun flag. This flag features a mountain representing Tibet, the snow lions of unified spiritual and secular life, and the 3-colored jewel of the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha.
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.
