Flag of Nepal
Subject: Geography | Topics:

The national flag of Nepal is the world’s only non-quadrilateral national flag. The crimson/red color is a traditional Nepalese color and the blue outlined edge represents the country’s peaceful nature. The two triangular portions of the Nepalese flag represent the Himalayan Mountains and the two main religions of the nation – which are Buddhism and Hinduism. The moon and sun originally represented the royal family and the prime minister’s family, the Rana family. They also represent the country’s desire to live as long as the sun and moon.
