Sri Lanka Country Flag

Vessels sailing under the Sri Lanka Country Flag are required to have on board this flag as part of flag state requirements that derive from maritime regulations in the International Code of Signals and the International Safety Management (ISM) Code. These codes are published by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as an ongoing effort to reinforce maritime safety procedures and communications to the international maritime community. Fleet management companies and ship owners are responsible to ensure that each vessel in their respective fleets have the appropriate flag signage onboard to be in compliance. This flag is used to identify the flag state a vessel is sailing under and to communicate with other vessels under the provisions of the International Code of Signals.

The Sri Lanka Country Flag is defined by a lion, facing left and holding a sword on a maroon background. The flag is bordered in yellow, and contains two bars of green and orange. The bars reside toward the hoist, or left side of the flag and are separated from the pallet on which the lion is depicted by a yellow border. A pipul leaf adorns each corner of the square maroon pallet, representing Buddhism. The two bars together are half the length of the maroon pallet. The green bar represents Islam, while the orange is a tribute to the Tamil race of native people. The lion is representative of the Sinhala race of native people, while the sword raised upright in his right paw is symbolic of the sovereignty of the nation. Buddhism's eight-fold path is dignified through the lion's tail which is raised above his body. The yellow border is meant to pay tribute to other minority races of people, while the maroon pallet recognizes other minority religions. Designated dimensions are 1:2, height to length, respectively.
