Unconventionally shaped flag of Nepal, which was adopted in 1962 together with Nepalese constitution, is made up of two orthogonal triangles where one is placed on the top of the other, both lined with a blue stripe. This shape emerged from a combination of two flags of competing branches of Rana dynasty that once ruled this country. The upper triangle bears a white silhouette of the moon, which represents the royal family and its power. The lower triangle that holds the symbol of the sun stands for Rana family and the political power. The combination of these two symbologies should represent the hope for Nepalese independence to last as long as there is the sun and the moon. The flag´s serrate shape also evokes the peaks of the Himalayas. Red color of the background indicates energy.
Officially the highest country on Earth, lofty Nepal is commonly referred to as the “roof of the world.” That seems like a fitting moniker for this Himalayan nation, where soaring, snow-capped mountains disappear into the clouds like stairways to heaven.
Mount Everest is the star attraction. Tourists come in their droves to climb, hike and admire the world’s tallest peak, which flirts with the stratosphere at 8,848m (29,029ft). But this charming country is much more than just mountains.
