About This Item

Nepal

The national flag of Nepal is the world's only national flag that is non-quadrilateral in shape.  The flag is a simplified combination of two single pennons, the vexillological word for a pennant.  Its crimson red is the color of the rhododendron, the country's national flower.  Red is also the sign of victory in war. The blue border is the color of peace.   The two triangles symbolize the Himalaya Mountains and represent the two major religions, Hinduism and Buddhism.  The depiction of celestial bodies represents permanence, the hope that Nepal will last as long as the sun and the moon.  The moon symbolizes that the Nepalese are soothing and calm, while the sun symbolizes fierce resolve.  The moon also symbolizes the shades and the cool weather of the Himalayas, whereas the sun symbolizes the heat and the high temperature at the lower part (Tarai) of Nepal.
 
The present flag was adopted in 1962. The individual pennants had been used for the preceding two centuries and the double pennant since the 19th century. The flag borrows the basic design from the original design, which has been in use for more than 2,000 years.  Until 1962, the flag's emblems, the sun and the crescent moon, had human faces.  They were removed to modernize the flag.

No worry about it being in a rural cache. They don't get much more rural than this. TB is in a baby bottle cache in a nice conservation area in RI not far from a butterfly garden. I hope this TB travels far and wide. Thanks for sharing!

Retrieved this nice TB from a very rural TB Motel in Gilmanton NH. It's interesting that I know just about all of the cachers who have had it the last 3 months. I will place it sometime this coming month. I'm thinking of keeping it until I travel in 3 weeks so it gets out of New England but we do have plenty of rural caches up here. It's still in a plastic bag in good condition. I will try to get a picture of it. Thanks for sharing the TB and for sharing the history of the flag.
