The flags are traditionally hung at an angle so that the prayers will ascend from the physical earth to the spiritual heavens. The yellow one represents the earth or ground, the green one represents the ocean or sea, the red one represents the spirit or angel carrying the message, the white one represents the clouds, and the blue one represents the sky or heavens. Traditionally, the Tibetan people believe that when the wind blows or there is a draft that causes the flags to move, the messages or prayers are read by the wind and carried up to the heavens. As they weather, the strands of the flags flying into the wind symbolizes prayers being answered. People often write their names or write the names of the people they are praying for directly on the flags.
