Nepal has the distinction of being the only country in the world whose national flag is not rectangular or square. The shape of the flag is said to derive from the fact that up until 19th century, the Nepalese flag was actually two pennants flown together, representing the two rival branches of the Rana Dynasty, the former rulers of Nepal.
The two flags were first joined in the 19th century but the new flag was not officially adopted until 1962, after the establishment of a constitutional form of government. Although the two symbols, sun and crescent moon, were originally symbols on the two pennants, they are now said to represent the hope that the country will survive as long as the sun and moon. They appear in white on a red background, crimson being the national colour, with a blue border.Contact us to purchase
