Prayer flags have been around for thousands of years. These colorful flags are often seen floating above river crossings or atop mountain passes protecting those traveling through. Originating in Tibet, they were first used as banners to differentiate warriors going into battle. As Buddhism proliferated in Tibet during the seventh century and flags were used for blessings to protect Buddha, they became known as prayer flags. The flags began to represent the peace and compassion associated with Buddhist practices. Early flags held prayers and pictures of fierce gods known to protect Buddha.
