Sri Lanka’s flag, also called the Lion Flag, was adopted in 1972. The lion first arrived with Vijaya, the first king of southern Sri Lanka, who brought a flag depicting a lion. All parts of the lion are highly symbolic on this flag. The lion itself symbolizes the strength and bravery of Sri Lanka, and the lion’s sword represents the nation’s sovereignty.
This outdoor flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a sturdy white canvas heading and grommets. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back.
This flag is used by Sri Lanka’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
