Nepal is formally called the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. It is a landlocked nation in South Asia. It is situated in the Himalayan region and at its northern flank is the People\’s Republic of China, and at its southern, eastern, and western borders is India. Its capital city is Kathmandu.

Nepal\’s recorded history kicks off with the Hindu Kiratis. Arriving from the east around the 7th or 8th century BC, these Mongoloid people are the first known rulers of the Kathmandu Valley. King Yalambar (the first of their 29 kings) is mentioned in the Mahabharata, the Hindu epic, but little more is known about them.

The form of government practiced in the nation for nearly all of its history is a monarchy reigned by the Shah dynasty. Recently, in the year 2006 because of a decade-long civil war with the Communist party of Nepal and the mass rallies of various political organizations, the monarchy was eradicated ending with its last ruler Gyanendra Shah and a new system of governance was favored. The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal was inaugurated in 2008 as its first president.

The flag of Nepal is known as the only flag in the world that is not quadrilateral in shape. The flag is a blend of two single flags or pennons. It is like two triangles combined, the upper triangle is a ninety-degree triangle with its longer side at the bottom while the other triangular shape is placed at the lower portion with the shorter side at its bottom.

The crimson/red color is a traditional Nepalese color and the blue outlined edge represents the country\’s peaceful nature. The two triangular portions of the Nepalese flag represent the Himalayan Mountains and the two main religions of the nation – which are Buddhism and Hinduism. The moon and the sun originally represented the royal family and the prime minister\’s family, the Rana family. They also represent the country\’s desire to live as long as the sun and moon.

The present flag, which omits those features, was established under the new constitution of December 16, 1962. The same symbols appear on the dozens of different civil and military flags used by Nepalese officials. The Flag Company Inc specialized in flag designs offered a special edition of decals and flags to memorize the history of Nepal Flag for the future.
