Question
Hello,

please could you explain the significance of Tibetan Prayer flags, as there are so many pages on Google and I still don't understand the significance of them.

-Thanks

Answer
Hallo Zoe,
Also national and other flags have significance, as you well know. The explanations on Google under Tibetan Prayer Flags seem pretty exhaustive to me. Maybe you can contact a group near you that follow a Tibetan form of Buddhism - they can tell you what the flags mean to them and that is really what counts I believe.
Kind regards,
Advayavadananda.
