History of Kites

Kites were first invented approximately 2800 years ago in China. It was said to be the invention of the famous 5th-century BC Chinese philosophers Mozi and Lu Ban. One of the first paper kites was used as a message for a rescue mission.

Kites were late to arrive in Europe, although windsock-like banners were known and used by the Romans.
