The inscriptions of this bad printed prayer flag are unreadable. In the middle part of the flag the depiction of the Wind Horse (rlung rta) can be seen. In the middle of its body there is a protective circle (srung ba’i ‘khor lo), on the top of the circle is the flamed Three Jewels (dkon mchog rin chen gsum) and the flamed sword (ral gri) of Mañjuśrī.
