Buddhist Prayer Flags in Dolphin Tale 2011

 What is it about dolphins?  They just steal the show and glow with youthful excitement.  Of vexillological note are the appearance of Buddhist prayer flags.  Usually these flag can be found in abundance around Mt. Everest, Tibet, and Nepal.  The story about these flags is that they are supposed to carry positive well wishing hopes and peaceful vibes as the wind causes them to bend with a breeze. 

 They appear as decorative items on the crows nest in the Dolphin Tale movie.  There is also a reddish mast pennant giving this special spot some character. 
In contrast to the spiritual essence of the colourful prayer flags, fun and happy western colour pennant streamers play a similar role.  In this case they create a charming environment.
