Nepal Flag: In Search of Metaphors
The Nepal flag was officially adopted on December 16, 1962, and it’s the only national flag that’s not a rectangle or square.
The blue border symbolizes peace, while red is the color of the rhododendron, Nepal’s official flower. The crescent moon is said to represent the royal house, while the sun represents the Rana family.
Nepal Army Chief Rukmangad has asked all Nepali to unite under one umbrella.
What’s that ‘umbrella’ metaphor? Is there anything than can bind all Nepalis with a sense of belonging? What can it be…King, Religion, Cow, Everest, Buddha, River, Mountains, Tarai,…
Does Nepali flag reflect the sentiments of all citizens within its borders?
What about the people of some ethnicity disgruntling that even the ‘New Nepal National Anthem’ does not reflect their sentiments?
