Karmapa Dream Flag - 36in.x 21in.

Inspired by a vision that came in a dream, the 16th Karmapa designed this “Namkhyen Gyaldar Namchen -the Victorious Flag of Buddha’s Wisdom.  He proclaimed, “Wherever this banner is flown the Dharma will flourish.”

Our version of this flag, sewn in our Kathmandu studios, is made from two separate pieces of colored cloth sewn together with embroidery thread.  Viewed equally  well from both sides, our Dream flags are thicker and more durable than printed flags. The edges are fully hemmed. The cloth is high quality (90%/ 10%) cotton/ polyester.  There is both a tube hem and cloth ties on the side for attaching to a pole. Our Karmapa Dream Flags come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. The flag on this page is the medium size.

According to the outer meaning the blue represents the sky (Nam) or heaven. The yellow symbolizes the earth. The wave symbolizes the Buddhadharma penetrating heaven and earth. According to the inner meaning the blue represents vision and spiritual insight and the yellow symbolizes our experience of the everyday world. The symmetry of the wave pattern shows the interdependence of the absolute and relative levels of reality. According to the secret meaning the blue symbolizes emptiness-wisdom and the yellow represents compassionate action. The wave is Mahamudra: the union of compassion and wisdom- the ultimate realization of one’s true nature.
