Srilanka Report Abuse
The lion in the flag represents the Sinhala race. The sword of the lion represents the sovereignty of the country. The noble eight fold path of Buddhism is signified by the lion's tail. Curly hair on the lion's head indicates religious observance, wisdom and meditation. The beard denotes purity of words. The handle of the sword highlights the elements of water, fire, air and earth. The nose indicates intelligence. The two front paws purport to purity in handling wealth. The verticle stripe of orange represent the minority Tamil race and the green verticle stripe the minority Muslim race. The four virtues of kindness: KINDNESS, FRIENDLINESS, HAPPINESS, EQUANIMITY are also represented in the flag. The border round the flag, which is yellow in color, represents other minor races. The bo-leaves at the four corners of the flag represent Buddhism and it's influence on the nation. They also stand for the four virtues - Kindness, Friendliness, Happiness and Equanimity. The maroon colored portion of the flag manifests the other minor religions.

The bo leaves Buddhism and its influence on the nation. They also stand for the four virtues of Kindness, Friendliness, Happiness and Equanimity. The sword of the lion The sovereignty of the nation and the braveness of its people. The curly hair on the lion's head Religious observance, wisdom and meditation. The eight hairs on lion's tail The Noble Eightfold Path. The beard of the lion Purity of words. The handle of the sword The elements of water, fire, air and earth that the country is made of. The nose of the lion Intelligence. The two front paws of the lion Purity in handling wealth. The vertical orange stripe The Tamil ethnicity. The vertical green stripe The Muslim faith and Moor ethnicity. The yellow border round the flag People from all cultures living together in Sri Lanka in including some Dutch burghers and Portuguese. The maroon background This represents the majority of Sinhalese people,it was used in early flags of Sri Lanka by Kings .
