Originally, the Sun and the Moon in our flag were the representations of the then two powerful ruling clans, the Sun dynasty (Suryabanshi) and the Moon dynasty (Chandrabanshi).
But From 1958, the flag’s emblems, the Sun and the crescent Moon were done with human faces. Where the face of the Moon resembled a woman with Goddess-like features and the Sun of a Male Deity. It is believed that it emphasizes the mythos that The Moon as a god is often depicted as Female, while the Sun is often depicted as Male and typically her husband.
Yet During the Rana Sasan, The Ranas appealed that The moon signified the Royal Descents (Royal Family) accompanied by The Sun symbolizing branch of the Rana family (members of which were prime ministers until 1961).
Different from these, Today’s eye-pleasing design of the flag was affirmed on 16 December 1962 with no facial featured emblems, along with the formation of a new constitutional government. The faces were discarded for a more modern aesthetic and to make it more alike other international flags.
Up to the present time, the notions towards the symbols have evolved and Now Nepalese contemplate that The moon expresses the pleasant weather of the Himalayas, whereas the sun exemplifies the warmth and the higher temperatures in the lower-lying regions of Nepal.
By the same token, the most prevalent and widely accepted definition from the past behind the emblems persists to be:
Like the Sun & the moon in the sky, the existence of Nepal is eternally eminent.
