  • The central snow covered mountain represents the great nation of Tibet. The six red rays emanating from the sun symbolize the six original ancestors of the Tibetan people: the six tribes called Se, Mu, Dong, Tong, Dru, and Ra. The combination of six red bands for the tribes, and six dark blue bands for the sky, represents the people's commitment to spiritual and secular rule. At the top of the snowy mountain, the sun with its rays shining brilliantly in all directions represents the equal enjoyment of freedom, spiritual and material happiness and prosperity by all beings in the land of Tibet. On the slopes of the mountain a pair of snow lions stand proudly, blazing with the manes of fearlessness, representing the country's victorious accomplishment of a unified spiritual and secular life. The two-colored swirling jewel held between the two lions represents the people's guarding and cherishing of the self discipline of correct ethical behavior. The raised jewel symbolizes Tibet's reverence for the Three Precious Gems: the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha. The yellow border symbolizes that the teachings of the Buddha, which are like pure refined gold and unbounded in space and time, are flourishing and spreading. The side without a border represents Tibet's openness to non-Buddhist thought.
