Flag of Tibet (GIF)

The flag of Tibet (Tibetan: བོད་ཀྱི་རྒྱལ་དར།; Chinese: 雪山獅子旗) is a visually captivating representation of the region's profound cultural and spiritual heritage. Centered on a white mountain, symbolizing Tibet's elevated geographical location, two snow lions bear a vibrant yin-yang symbol and a burning gem in blue, white, and orange hues, representing the delicate equilibrium between contrasting forces and spiritual enlightenment. A golden sun rising behind the mountain embodies the aspirations for freedom, happiness, and prosperity. Twelve alternating red and blue rays emanate from the sun, symbolizing the diverse ancestral roots of Tibetan tribes and fostering unity. The gold border enveloping the flag emphasizes the preciousness and resilience of Tibet's cultural identity. Collectively, these elements intricately weave together to symbolize the harmonious relationship between religion and earthly rule, encapsulating the principles and ideals of Buddhism that are integral to Tibet's history and collective consciousness. In addition, the Chinese flag is officially used instead of this flag.
