As we again revisit the first set of flags, here is Virginia Wise Abrams' collaboration from March 2006. She was influenced by Native American button blankets, given as remembrance at a death among certain tribes. Her thread color choices represented the energy chakras. Buttons and chakras symbolize wholeness.
Here is a bit of history if you are just joining us. This set of twelve prayer flags began in July 2005. Each participant chose a personal theme for their flag. It is the initial set created for the Bhavana Project, which is an ongoing community art work intending to share wishes and aspirations with the wider world. New participants are always welcome!
