Prayer Flags - for the Earth

Earth groups

The 'Earth' group

The 'Earth' groups developed from my desire to make a grouping of designs that contained both 'water' elements (such as the 'Lotus' that floats or the 'Bamboo' as it looks so lovely beside a pond) and 'grounded' designs such as the 'Tree'! The 'Peace on Earth' flag is always in the center.

Tree Groups

The 'Tree' group

I have mixed the 'Snowy Owl', 'Tree', 'Calligraphy of Geese', 3 'prayers for the trees'.

I have mixed the 'Snowy Owl', 'Grizzly Bear', 'Tree', 'Nesting Doves', 'Calligraphy of Geese', for 5 'prayers for the trees'

Lydia's Forest has the 'Snowy Owl', 'Tree' and 'Grizzly Bear'.

There are little brass bells at the beginning, the end and between each flag and are strung on black cord. The story information is found in the "One Little Prayer" section.

The Salaam Shalom (May There Be Peace In The Middle East) group

Shanti, Shanti, Shanti! peace, Peace, Peace!
This small group has images of Nesting Doves, Goodwill To All, Shalom, Salaam on one side;
the other side reads, Peace Be Upon You, Peace On Earth, Be The Peace You Wish To See In This World.

It is my belief that "peace" looks much like the workings of a family....we often disagree, sometimes we are not happy with family members but then meet for meals, putting personal feelings to one side and celebrating the ties that unite us, the love that centers all.

There are little brass bells at the beginning, the end and between each flag and are strung on black cord. The story information is found in the "One Little Prayer" section.


Prayers For The Endangered Ones

The three group of prayers is composed of The Polar Bear, The Tiger, The Panda Bear.

The five group of prayers is composed of The Polar Bear, The Grizzly Bear, The Sea Turtle, The Tiger, The Panda Bear.

The seven group of prayers is composed of The Polar Bear, The Prairie Dog, The Grizzly Bear, The Earth, The Sea Turtle, The Tiger, The Panda Bear.

There are little brass bells at the beginning, the end and between each flag and are strung on black cord. The story information is found in the "One Little Prayer" section.

3 group - prayer flags - Garden Birds design mix

Hand crafted and hand printed on natural raw silk, double sided and strung on black cord between little brass bells. Each flag measures about 5”X 5”. The cord is about 31 ” long. Story cards included.

When I wake to the sweet song of small birds I often look, in my mind, down from space, from just the distance where I can see this round earth, partly in darkness, and watch the sunlight moving ever forward to the 'west', and then I 'hear' this joyful sound, at the edge of the darkness, greeting the promise of warmth and light, once again.
That vision was the inspiration for this group of the 'Happy as a Bird', 'Tree', and 'Peace Doves' silk prayer flags. You can read the full 'stories' of each flag on the ' One Little Prayer' page.

Dove group

The 'Dove' group


This a mix of 5 designs that Bill put together and is quite popular! It begins with the 'Peace on Earth' flag and then 'Bamboo', 'Dove', 'Blossom' and ends with the 'Tree' flag.

Lotus Bamboo
groups

In this grouping the 'Lotus & Bamboo' alternate so one can see the designs in both languages.
This is a mix of silk prayer flags, with the 'Dancing Dragon' (good fortune), the 'Wave' (I am the sea and the sea is me) and 'Mermaid & Dolphin' (poem by Kahlil Gibran) original designs. Strung on black cord there are little brass bells between each of the prayer flags.
The 'Kuan Yin' group of designs are a special mix with the The 'Kuan Yin' flag in the center.as I feel her blessing our planet and it's many life forms. These designs begin and end with the 'Peace on Earth' flags.
The silk prayer flag of my original Buddha includes the OM Mani Padme Hum mantra in the design. Buddha sits, like St. Francis of the garden, surrounded with birds and little tree frogs. In the three group of prayer flags it is joined with the Peace Doves on one side and on the other side the OM/Lotus designs. The five group includes the Peace on Earth - Goodwill to All design.Strung on black cord there are little brass bells between each of the prayer flags.

'Buddha - Kuan Yin'

My favorite way to 'touch the earth' is on my knees, working in the garden. Buddha and Kuan Yin join me in my prayers for our dear little earth. These groups begin with the Buddha and end with Kuan Yin, with water and earth designs falling between. 'Story' cards about each of the designs are included.
