Description
The Lung-ta (prayer flag) allowed the prayers to be spread by the wind. The color of the flags symbolized the five basic elements -- namely, wind, water, fire, earth and wood.

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yading)

Yading is a national level reserve in the southwest of Sichuan Province, China. Unknown to the outside world until the late 1990s, it is a mountain sanctuary and major pilgrimage site comprising three 6000m+ peaks sanctified by the 5th Dalai Lama and seen as emanations of the three boddhisatvas Chenrezig, Jampayang and Chenadorje.
