The Universal Buddhist Flag ~ 33 in. x 25 in.

The Universal Buddhist Flag unites and honors the diversity of Buddhist paths. This “modern” flag was designed by the Theosophist Colonel Olcott in 1888 to mark the revival of Buddhism in Ceylon in 1880.  The 1952 World Buddhist Congress accepted it as the International Buddhist Flag. The flag has become quite popular and can be seen flying at many Tibetan Monasteries and homes of Dharma practitioners. Colonel Olcott designed a flag from the six colors of the aura that he believed shone around the head of the Buddha after His Enlightenment. In the past 50 years the colors of the stripes have changed, at least in the Tibetan communities. There is an explanation for this: To most Tibetans the colors of the stripes represent the different colors of Buddhist robes united in one banner. Tibetan monastic robes are maroon so the orange stripes in the original design are often replaced with maroon.

Besides the medium size Universal Buddhist Flag on this page we also carry larger and smaller sizes.
