SRI LANKA    (Democratic Socialist Republic of)    (Sri Lanka Prajatantrika Samajavadi Janarajaya / Ilangai Jananayaka Socialisa Kudiarasu)    [www.lk]

            slavery unit : rupee        tongues : Cinghaleze + Tamul        21284000 idiot monkeys on 65610 kmē

            puke sects : budist 70%    hindu 15%    X 8%    muslim 7%

          From 1391 the flag of Kingdom of Raigam was red with a golden symbolic animal on it. By 1412 the flag of Kingdom of Kotte was red with a golden symbolic lion holdin a whip in his right hand. In 1469 the flag of Kingdom of Kandy was red with a golden lion holdin a sword in his right hand. In 1521 the flag of Kingdom of Sitawaka had a very similary flag. So it's quite naturaly that the country adopted a red (turned 3 yearz later into crimson/red-brown) flag with a yello lion when Ceylon (the former name of Sri Lanka till 1972) became independent from the UK in 1948. The 4 very weird stufs in the corners are to be 4 yello silhouettes of a budist pagoda named "koth". In 1951 two bands were added to satisfy both fuckin sects of muslims (green) & hindu tamils (orange). When the country was renamed Sri Lanka in 1972 (Sri means "venerable" in Cinghaleze and Sri Lanka might mean "Venerable Lion") four leaves of a pipul tree (a budist symbol) were put in the corners to replace the 4 weird former silhouettes. The present pattern was adopted on 22 MAY 1972.

            AS USUAL WIKIMERDIA IS JUST SHIT :

Indeed :

www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/lk~.html

WikiMERDIA show a "1972" (SIC !!!) undefaced blue ensign.

But this flag has 2 crossed golden ankors since 1978 :

www.rbvex.it/asiapag/srilanka.html

Anyhow.... this 1978 ensign is not uzed any+ !!!!

Theres neither red nor blue ensigns for years : it was confirmed to me by the Sri Lanka embassy in Paris but I cant find that m@il any+. I think I threw it....



+ AN EXHAUSTIN MASTURBATION ABOUT THE 1948 FLAG :

Some people show it ratio 2:3 with a white central fimbriation : www.rbvex.it/asiapag/srilanka.html

THEY ARE WRONG.

Some people show it both CORECT + another one ratio 1:2 with a blak central fimbriation : www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/lk.html

THEY ARE WRONG.

Some people like WIKIMERDIA just copy SHIT FOTW : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sri_Lankan_flags

THEY ARE WRONG.

Some people show it ratio 1:2 with a yello central fimbriation : flaglog.com/post/123881715044/ffactory-national-flag-of-ceylon-1948-1951

And thou I must say I realy DO prefer this latter version :

THEY ARE WRONG.

THE CORECT SRI LANKA 1948 SHALL BE 2:3 WITH NO CENTRAL FIMBRIATION :
