Prayer & Wish Flags
Prayer and wish flags are inspired by the tradition of Tibetan prayer flags. Individuals create a flag with fabric and decorate it with symbols and designs based on their dreams and wishes. Finally, the flags, similar to Tibetan prayer flags, are attached to a line and displayed. Individuals can retrieve their flags at any point and take them home or leave them to flutter in the breeze for the remainder of the event. This is an activity that inspires us to dream and project our prayers, dreams and wishes out into the universe.
