Red with a blue border around the flag's peculiar shape (two superimposed triangles); the upper, smaller triangle bears a white stylized moon; the larger, lower triangle features a twelve-rayed sun.

Meaning

Red symbolizes the color of the flowers of the rhododendron plant and victory in war; blue represents peace; the crescent moon symbolizes the royal house; the sun symbolizes the Rana family. Originally these were two independent triangular 'pennants' which later merged into one unusual flag. The flag of Nepal is the only national flag in the world which is not square or rectangular.
