Sri Lanka will alert the world trade organisation and raise its strongest objections over the sale of toilet mats and floor mats using the Sri Lankan national flag image on international sale websites including Amazon, a minister said yesterday.

State Minister of Marketing Development and Consumer Protection, Lasantha Alagiyawanna said authorities will take action against the foreign manufacturers and will also alert the Sri Lankan missions overseas to follow up on the matter.

The mats, which are available in three sizes are available as non slip doormats while mats to cover the toilet seats are also available at different prices. However the Sri Lankan flag image is not the only image used, as the mats are available with the USA flag images, UK flag images as well as flag images from other countries.(JAMILA HUSSAIN)

    How cheap we have become to be a rug to all the nations.

    What a joke. Sri Lanka is also violating WHO rules by selectively stopping imports. Just another cheap public stunt to keep the fools happy.

    Insane "national proud". Most people in all worldwide countries even do not know that Sri Lanka exist and when, they do not know where it is located.

    That is the regard or respect China has for SL.

    Defend from whom? From our corrupted politicians, I guess.
