  • Karnataka State Flag Design Ready, Awaits Clearance From MHA

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has said that the flag is not official until it gets approval from the Centre. The flag with red, white and yellow colours has the state emblem, ganda bherunda, in the middle.

The state emblem of Karnataka is based on the kingdom of Mysore and is carried on all Government of Karnataka correspondence.

Pro-Kannada activists have virtually adopted this flag as a symbol of state pride.

A nine-member panel headed by the Secretary, Department of Kannada and Culture recently submitted its report to the government with a recommendation that Karnataka has a tricolour state flag.

Calling the state flag, a "sign of Kannadiga pride" and a "historic decision", he said it would be sent to the central government for approval.

The issue may initiate a hot political debate between the Karnataka Congress as BJP has opposed the suggestions of a separate flag of the state saying a separate flag would be against the unity and integrity of the country. Following a huge protest over Hindi imposition by the Centre, Siddaramaiah had ordered removal of Hindi signage from Bengaluru Metro in last July.

At the other end, sources in the party claim, led by Bangalore South MP and union minister for parliamentary affairs H N Ananth Kumar and a few other members of Parliament (MPs) from Karnataka met union home minister Rajnath Singh to discuss the "lawlessness" in the state also.

The new flag will bear Karnataka's coat of arms. "We will press upon the Centre to clear this soon", he said.

Also in the federal system the national flag is always supreme and will be above the state flag, he added. "A long cherished dream is coming true." said Siddaramaiah.

"This is for the first time that the state will have its own flag".

In 2012, the then BJP government headed by D V Sadananda Gowda accorded official status to the state flag through a notification making the hoisting of the state flag on government buildings, schools and colleges mandatory on the occasion of the state formation day. "We hope it will be approved quickly", he said.

He said the BJP had no objection to the state flag and even its design.
