What do we see when we look at a flag - a rectangular piece of cloth
or the cultural identifier of a nation? Throughout time, flags have been
used by warriors to carry into battle or to identify borders. But one of
the most unique uses of flags is in Tibet. Lung-ta or prayer flags, as
they are more commonly known, are a symbol of peace and carry the
intentions of the person who hangs them.

Our country has a new beginning with the inauguration. With this in
mind "intentional flags" were created through a series of workshops
held at a variety of locations including schools, community organizations,
and businesses. Following in the Tibetan tradition, flags are red, white,
blue, green and yellow. However, instead of the traditional images used
in Tibet, workshop participants invested the flags with their own symbols
and meaning.
