The flag of Nepal is a unique and distinctive national symbol. It features two overlapping, right-triangular shapes stacked on top of each other. The upper triangle is blue, representing peace, while the lower triangle is red, representing bravery. A white, stylized depiction of the Nepalese national emblem separates the two triangles. It consists of a moon and sun, symbolizing the country’s hope for a long and prosperous existence.
The flag’s shape is not rectangular like most national flags, but instead takes the form of two overlapping pennants. Representing Nepal’s location in the Himalayas and the country’s two major religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, this design holds cultural and geographical significance.
