Karnataka could be second Indian state after Jammu & Kashmir with separate flag

Karnataka could be second Indian state after Jammu & Kashmir with separate flag

The Karnataka government on Thursday took a historic decision to have a separate state flag. "The new flag, called 'Naada Dhwaja" in Kannada, is has white stripe in between two stripes of colors yellow and red.

The Karnataka government on Thursday approved a flag of the state.

At the heart of the flag is the official emblem of the state, the coat of arms of the erstwhile state of Mysore.

Karnataka has been using an unofficial yellow-and-red flag since the 1960s. "The government will be seeking an amendment to enable provisions of including the Karnataka flag also as one of the symbols in the Flag Code", the official said.

Pointing out that the state can not declare its flag by itself and it requires approval from the Centre, Siddaramaiah said, "So we will immediately send it to the central government".

"A state flag will not disrupt the unity and integrity of the country", Siddaramaiah said previous year. The state had recently witnessed huge protests over Hindi imposition by the Centre.

After unveiling the flag, Siddaramaiah said, "Kannada flag is not unconstitutional". The meeting was attended by representatives of Kannada organisations, littérateurs and official representatives. The saffron party had strongly opposed the state flag idea when it was in power in Karnataka, saying it would be against the unity and integrity of the country.

Teaser also indicates that the film will definitely be high on performances with Rajinikanth and Nana Patekar coming face-to-face. As in Kabali , director Pa Ranjith allows Rajinikanth to play his age on screen, at no loss to his superhero image.

The new flag will bear Karnataka's coat of arms.

In 2012, the BJP-led government had refused to meet the same demand.

"Let us not forget that it was former chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda (of the BJP) who initiated the move for identifying a state flag".

The "flag" is to be sent to the Centre for its approval. "This is no damage to the national flag".

In the 1994 Supreme Court case S.R. Bommai v/s Union of India, the apex court said there is no prohibition on states having their own flag. "Siddaramaiah sat on this decision for four years and has used it now because of his political troubles", Prakash said.

It also has the state's emblem "Gandaberunda" at the centre, but will not have the inscription "Satyameva Jayate, he said". "Also, nuances like what would be the protocol and code for the flag among other issues", he had said.
