The Tibetan National Flag was introduced in 1912 by the 13th Dalai Lama. It has served as the emblem of the government of Tibet in exile headquartered in Dharamsala, India and as a symbol of the Tibetan independence movement. 

The elements of the flag of the Tibetan Nation have symbolic significance: The glorious snow mountain in the center symbolizes the land of the great nation of Tibet. Across the dark blue sky the six red rays of light symbolize the six original tribes of ancient Tibet.  At the tip of the snow mountain, the sun’s brilliant rays shine in all directions, representing the impartial enjoyment of freedom, prosperity and happiness by all beings in the land of Tibet. On the slopes of the mountain a pair of snow lions with turquoise manes represent fearless victory and the accomplishment of a unified spiritual and secular life. The snow lions hold above them the flaming triple gem, representing the Tibetan people’s reverence toward the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. The surrounding yellow border represents the the purified gold- like teachings of the Buddha which spread and flourish in all directions and in all times.

This bright red cap has an adjustable buckle in the back; one size fits all.
