In a move seen by many as a masterstroke by Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah to silence the Opposition on issues like deteriorating law and order and attack on the Lokayukta, the state government unveiled the new state flag on Thursday.
Kannada Development Authority Chairman Siddaramaiah, in the reportsubmitted to the Chief Minister recently, had recommended a tricolour flag for the State and even suggested the colour scheming. "The state emblem of Ganda Bherunda surrounded by Sharabha with four lions on top will be in the middle of the flag".
"Siddaramaiah has unveiled the flag because his government is on the backfoot over the stabbing of the Lokayukta on Wednesday", the saffron party's spokesperson S Prakash said.
It has been send to the Centre for final approval, after which it would be approved as the state flag of Karnataka.
He defended Karnataka's flag on the ground that the Constitution does not bar state flags and all states can have their own flags.
In the tri-colour Stage flag, white symbolises peace with State emblem. The unofficial flag was created by Kannada writer and activist Ma Ramamurthy for a pro-Kannada political party called the Kannada Paksha. It is not used during national ceremonies like Republic Day or Independence Day, but people hoist it across the state on 1 November every year to mark the day the state was formed.
The BJP in the state has for now made a decision to stay away from commenting on the Karnataka flag.
The new flag will bear Karnataka's coat of arms.
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. "We will press upon the Centre to clear this soon", the chief minister said. The setting up of the panel resulted in a controversy with BJP accusing Congress of subverting the national flag.
In 2012, the BJP-led government had refused to meet the same demand. "There is absolutely no problem with the state using this as a symbol of the rich and proud heritage of Karnataka", he had said. "There is no objection for states to have a separate flag in the Constitution. A long-cherished dream has come true", he later tweeted. "I am happy with this flag because it also has our state emblem", he said.
