Why is Nepal’s Flag Not Rectangular?

This is one of the funniest conversations that I have had with my friends.
 
We were at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana for a debate tournament. On the way to the cafeteria for lunch, we have to pass a hallway which has flags of countries around the world. We come across Nepal’s flag and I proudly tell everyone that it is the only flag in the world that is not rectangular in shape. One of them asks, “Why is it so?” Another replies, “Because they couldn’t afford rest of it!”
 
Now that I think of it, knowing how poor Nepal is, he was probably right!
