Prayer Flags: ©ingellei

The satra is the prayer flags used in the religious rituals among the Meiteis. It can be cited at most religious places (shrines). The layers of spiral is made of cotton cloth with designed patterns cut out. Most commonly used in white, it is also found in different colours.

Personally, I find it aesthetically appealing.
