Sri Lanka Flag
Sri Lanka's national flag, often known as the Sinha Flag or Lion Flag, depicts a golden lion holding a kastane sword in its right forepaw against a maroon backdrop. The lion symbolizes the Sinhalese community, and the maroon color symbolizes the country's old Sinhalese Kingdom.
The flag contains four gold bo leaves, one in each corner, and is surrounded by gold. These leaves symbolize the Buddhist ideals of mett (kindness), karu (compassion), mudit (empathetic delight), and upeksh (equanimity).
The flag also has two vertical stripes of equal width in teal and orange. The orange stripe depicts the Tamil community in Sri Lanka, which includes both Sri Lankan Tamils and Indian Tamils. The Sri Lankan Moors are represented by the green stripe (Muslims of Sri Lanka). The golden yellow border depicts the country's numerous minority communities.
