Nepal Flag

We carry authentic Nepal Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Nepal national flag is often displayed at embassies, outside of businesses associated with Nepal, and at the homes of people who take great pride in their Nepal heritage.

Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor International Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Nepal Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial international flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.

Our outdoor international flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in four sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., and 5ft. x 8ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations, businesses, and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their international pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Nepal flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor International Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Nepal Flag on your front porch. Outdoor flags can also be displayed indoors on interior walls of your home with screws anchored in the wall to attach to the grommets.

In addition to the flags we offer for purchase, we maintain an archive of the audio and lyrics of the Nepal National Anthem, historical information about the Nepal flag, demographic data about Nepal, and free high resolution images of the Nepal flag for use in projects and on websites.

Regardless of your application, we are looking forward to working with you to provide the required flags, flagpoles, and hardware for your application. If you need assistance, please reach out to us by phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to help.

History of the Nepal Flag

The Nepal flag is the only flag in the world that is not square or rectangular. It features two right triangles that overlap. The top triangle is smaller than the lower triangle. The color of the Nepal flag is red with a blue border and in the top triangle there is a white crescent moon that is transmitting eight rays and in the lower triangle is a white 12-pointed sun.

The red color represents Nepal's national flower which is the rhododendron and is a symbol of victory and courage as well as representing the country's conquest. The blue color symbolizes peace and harmony. The two triangles were originally used to symbolize the Himalaya mountains, but they currently symbolize Hinduism and Buddhism. The moon on the Nepal flag represents the calmness of the Nepalese People as well as the cool weather in the Himalayas and the sun represents the heat in the lower part of the nation. Together, the sun and moon also symbolize the hope and stability of the country, that will survive as long as the sun and the moon. The Nepal flag was adopted on December 16th, 1962. Nepal does not have or celebrate an Independence Day as it has never been ruled by foreigners or a colony.

Nepal is a landlocked country that is located in Southeast Asia and shares borders with India and China. The largest and capital city of Nepal is called Kathmandu and it is thought that the country's history began here with the Hindu Kiratis ruling Kathmandu valley in the 7th-8th centuries, making Nepal the oldest country in Southeast Asia. The country is protected by the "Gurkha Soldiers" who have the motto "Better to die than be a coward" and they have also been a paid part of the British army in 1815.

Nepal's economy is considered a poor nation and many people here live in poverty. The country's economy does rely greatly on agriculture, textiles, and tourism and is home to many beautiful tourist attractions. Kathmandu is the biggest tourist destination in the country. One of the main attractions in Kathmandu is the "Kwa Bahal" (Golden Temple) which is a Buddhist Monastery that dates back to the 12th century. The temple has been as it is now since 1409 and not changed.

The Buddhist monasteries and temples hold high significance and importance in Nepal as this was the birth place of Buddha and some of the most important pilgrimage sites are here. Another main attraction is the "Bouddhanath Monastery" which is the largest monastery that Nepal has. Nepal is also home to the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, which is also known as "Sagarmatha" which translates as "Goddess of the Sky." The Himalaya mountain range can also be found in Nepal and is home to the highest lake on earth, "Tilicho."
