Traditionally, prayer flags come in sets of five, one in each of five colors. The five colors represent the elements of the earth, and are arranged from left to right in specific order: blue, white, red, green, and then yellow. Different elements are associated with different colors for specific traditions and purposes.
According to the Buddhists, health and harmony are produced through the balance of the five elements.
