    What is outside does not matter. What matters is inside. Anyway after two days under hot sun, colours change anyway.

    LOL..hope BBS wont accuse the MUSLIM traders of doing this.... I also bet that these were picked from Sinhalese shops, of which the owners do NOT know the real flag to have purchased these for sale.... wonder what they plan to do with these flags...

    Will the CAA intervene wherever the Buddhist principls of compassion and tolerance are violated and made a mockery of, especially by the very same people who preach it?

    Both right and wrong flags will not help anyone to tread the path to NIRVANA .

    The Buddhist flag was created in the recent past. There were no such during the times of Lord Buddha. this was copy of other religions and not part of the Buddhist physiology.

    Huna Monday, 12 May 2014 12:15 PM

    work of the newly formed religious police? next they should arrest all the Buddhists who doesn't go to the Temple on Poya day

    ANTON Monday, 12 May 2014 01:03 PM

    FIRST STANDARDIZE THE RELIGIONS AND LAWS AND SECONDLY, THE COLOUR OF THE FLAGS.
