About This Item
The Tibetan flag, also known as the “snow lion flag” or the “Free Tibet flag”, was a flag of the military of Tibet, introduced by the 13th Dalai Lama in 1912; it was used in the same capacity until 1959. Designed with the help of a Japanese priest, it reflects the design motif of Japanese military's Rising Sun Flag.
The flag depicts six red rays of light radiating from a golden disk in the sky which stands for the six original tribes of Tibet, namely; the Se, Mu, Dong, Tong, Dru and Ra. The colored jewel symbolizes all the people of Tibet, who are enjoying equally the light of freedom, spiritual and material happiness and prosperity. The Tibet flag displays two courageous snow lions representing the temporal and the spiritual power. The lions are taking the wheel of the Ying Yang. The Ying Yang symbol represents spiritual energy. Upon Ying Yang, there are the 3 jewels of Buddhism, namely Buddha, the dharma, and the sangha, which means the law serving monks.
