The Meaning Behind Tibetan Prayer Flags

Chances are you have seen Tibetan prayer flags before, but do you know where they came from and what they symbolize? These beautiful pieces of cloth are more than just decorations, and in a Hub titled History & Symbolism of Tibetan Prayer Flags, melbel explains more about their background and meaning.

Melbel’s Hub is so fascinating that we decided to feature it in this week’s Weekly Advice from Everyday Experts podcast, so listen in as we discuss The Meaning Behind Tibetan Prayer Flags. You’ll find that these mantra-adorned flags have a beautiful purpose, and one that everyone can get behind!

If you have something (religious, cultural, commercial, or entirely random) that performs a purpose similar to Tibetan prayer flags, we’d love to hear about it! Send us an email at We’re also looking for cool new Hubs to discuss, so feel free to send future podcast suggestions our way as well.
