The snow lions on the slopes of the mountain represent fearlessness and unified secular values. The three-coloured jewel held by the lions represents the three spiritual teachings in which the people of Tibet take refuge.

The yellow line that forms the perimeter of the flag stands for the spread of the pure gold like teachings of the Buddha.
