O Antiphons Garden Flag Collection: The Proclamation of Advent
Journey through the final days of Advent with our O Antiphons Garden Flag Collection, a series of seven beautifully crafted flags, each representing the ancient chants that mark the Vespers of the Liturgy of the Hours during Advent. Rooted in the rich liturgical heritage of the Catholic Church, these flags are a visual homage to the profound biblical antecedents of Christ.
- Set of Seven Flags: Each flag is a vibrant portrayal of the O Antiphons, ancient prayers introduced in the 8th century, inviting the coming of Christ with titles derived from the Old Testament.
- O Sapientia (O Wisdom): Wisdom personified, calling from the high heavens, teaching us the path of knowledge.
- O Adonai (O Lord of Israel): The might of the Lord, appearing to Moses in the flame of the burning bush.
- O Radix Jesse (O Root of Jesse): The sign to the peoples and the ensign of salvation, sprouting from Jesse’s stem.
- O Clavis David (O Key of David): The authority of King David, unlocking the gates of an eternal kingdom.
- O Oriens (O Rising Sun): The radiance of the dawn, bringing light to those in darkness.
- O Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations): The cornerstone of the people, uniting the divided.
- O Emmanuel (O God With Us): The long-awaited promise of a virgin’s son, Emmanuel.
- Artistic Design: Each flag is a work of art, featuring illuminated manuscript-style artwork with gold leaf accents, reminiscent of medieval scriptoriums.
- Quality Craftsmanship: Durable materials ensure that these flags can be displayed outdoors throughout the Advent season, year after year.
- Spiritual Dimension: Beyond their beauty, these flags serve as daily meditations, each flag raising our minds to the prophetic declarations of Christ’s titles.
