Nepal is the only country in the world with a unique form of the flag. Not a square, but like two overlapping triangles. What does mean?
If you mention the unique flag in the world, then Nepal is the answer. The shape of the flag of an independent country in 1923 from Britain was in the form of two triangles. It is summarized by Landdisposition.com from various sources, the unique shape of the Nepalese flag used as a national flag on December 16, 1962.
Three versions are stating why the flag of Nepal is a triangle. When other countries have adjusted their national flags to European standards, Nepal is the only country that has chosen to keep the traditional shape of the triangle. The triangle flag is a normal culture in South Asia, like the Hindu and Khanda flags, the symbol of the Sikh (a belief in the Punjab region).
Flag Symbols and Meanings
The Nepal flag as a symbol also has a special meaning:
- First, the triangle symbolizes the Nepal mountainous region. No doubt, this country is indeed crossed by the Himalayan Mountains with many triangular peaks.

Many people are wrong when drawing the Nepalese flag. This is because it is necessary to understand the formula based on the provisions in the Nepalese law. The trick is, from point A, draw an AC line perpendicular to AB, followed by making an FG line in the middle of the AC line. Then, make point D in the middle of the FC line followed by connecting point G to C and connecting point B to D. Now, form the Nepalese flag.
