Historical decission by K'taka govt, in need of seperate flag!

Flagging off the "Kannadiga pride" ahead of the assembly polls, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday unveiled the proposed official state flag for Karnataka.

The tri-colour flag in red, white and yellow has state emblem of a two-headed mythical bird called "Ganda Bherunda" in the middle.

The Karnataka government on Thursday (March 8) announced that it has adopted Karnataka State Flag.

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

Earlier, Karnataka had an informal or unofficial yellow and red flag used by Kannada organisations and others.

After widespread demands for an official flag, the Karnataka government in June 2017 formed a committee to design one. "The state government did not join in this debate, but also took a historic decision to get a state flag", Siddaramaiah said after he unveiled the flag.

The proposal to have a state flag will be sent to the home ministry for approval.

After arriving at a consensus with regard to accepting the flag recommended by the expert committee, an elated Chief Minister said: "The long pending demand of having separate State flag has finally been realised with the support extended by all the concerned". The meeting was attended by representatives of Kannada organisations, littérateurs and official representatives.

It also has the state's emblem "Gandaberunda" at the centre, but will not have the inscription "Satyameva Jayate, he said". The move by the Siddaramaiah government marks a departure from Karnataka's 2012 stand when the BJP was in office.

The "flag" is to be sent to the Centre for its approval. He also said that there are no legal complications. The only thing is we have to hoist it below the national flag, which we will anyway do. "There is no opposition for States to have separate flag in the Constitution". This flag is unofficially considered as state flag since 1960s.

Narendar Pani, a political analyst and professor at the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) says the flag is part of Siddaramaiah's larger plan of bringing Kannada identity to the fore, which has defined his style of politics.
