Fluttering Tibetan prayer flags are the most common holy decoration seen esp. on mountain passes across Tibet. Each flag is written with Buddhist scripture and Tibetans believe that when flags are blown by the wind, the Buddhist scripture will also be chanted and spread to infinite space. There are five main colors that are known as pancha-varna in Sanskrit, which means The Five Pure Lights.
