Buddisht Temple North Carolina USA

The six colours of the Buddhist flag represent the colours of the aura that emanated from the body of the Buddha when He attained Enlightenment.

Blue: Loving kindness, peace and universal compassion.

Yellow: The Middle Path - avoiding extremes, the absence of form and emptiness.

Red: Blessings of practice - achievement, wisdom, virtue, fortune and dignity.

White: Purity of dhamma - it leads to liberation, outside of time or space.

Orange: The Buddha's Teaching - full of wisdom and strength.

Combination: The combination of the five symbolises the universality of religious Truth.
