The Sri Lanka flag, also known as the Lion Flag or the Lion Flag of Sinhalese, is a vibrant and significant national symbol. The flag consists of a rectangular field with a prominent gold lion holding a sword in its right paw on a crimson background. The lion represents bravery, strength, and the Sinhalese ethnicity, one of the major ethnic groups in Sri Lanka.

The flag’s four bo leaves, one in each corner, symbolize Buddhism, the predominant religion in Sri Lanka, and its teachings of peace and harmony. These leaves also represent the four virtues: kindness, compassion, equanimity, and joy. The crimson background symbolizes the bravery and sacrifices made by the country’s citizens throughout history.

The gold border surrounding the field signifies unity among the different ethnic groups living in Sri Lanka. The two vertical stripes, green on the hoist side and saffron orange on the fly side, represent the country’s Muslim and Tamil communities, respectively, promoting ethnic harmony and coexistence.

Constructed from durable nylon material, flag designers have designed this flag to withstand the outdoor elements. The nylon fabric is lightweight, allowing the flag to flutter gracefully even in the slightest breeze. Its vibrant colors are fade-resistant, ensuring that the flag remains bold and vibrant over time, whether displayed outdoors or indoors.

This certification guarantees that the flag manufacturer produces the flag according to the highest industry standards.
