Nepali flag

Nepali flag

Nepal’s flag is the only national flag in the world that is not rectangular in shape.
The two triangles symbolise the mountains of the Himalayas.
And also the two main religions in the country: Hinduism and Buddhism.

Red is the colour of the national flower, the rhododendron.
And also stands for victory in war and the courage of the Nepalese people.
The blue colour stands for peace.

The sun and the moon symbolise aggression of the fighters and the tranquility and peacefulness of the people.

We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
