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

In a first Karnataka CM unveils proposed state flag

Except Jammu and Kashmir, no other state in India has its own flag.

The emblem which forms part of the flag is used in all State correspondence. The then government had told the court that it had not accepted suggestions to declare the red-and-yellow Kannada flag the official state flag, as that would go against the "unity and integrity of the country".

The committee decided not to use the unofficial yellow and red flag that has been in vogue since the 1960s. The State government had in July 2017 formed a committee headed by Kannada litterateur Hampa Nagarajaiah, to suggest a flag for the State, after repeated demands from several political and pro-Kannada body leaders.

Speaking about the new flag, Flag committee member Mukhyamantri Chandru said that in an attempt to give some sanctity to the Karnataka state, the government chose to have a state flag as there is nothing in the constitution that says states should not have a flag.

According to a report in NDTV, Mukhyamantri Chandru, a member of the flag committee, said, "There is nothing in the Constitution that says states should not have a flag".

The proposal will be sent to the Union home ministry for approval of the red, white and yellow flag. 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. "But the state flag will always fly below the national flag", Siddaramaiah said. Along with the fight against Hindi imposition, this new flag has put the BJP in a quandary. The state Cabinet is likely to clear the proposal of a separate state flag and will send it to the Centre for an amendment to the Flag Code, 2002.

The BJP, utilising the opportunity at hand to highlight the "deteriorating" law and order situation in the state ahead of the 2018 elections, on Thursday took the "dasterdly" attack on Lokayukta Vishwanath Shetty to the doorsteps of prime minister Narendra Modi. "We hope it will be approved quickly", he said. "The flag was re-designed after considering the history and legal aspects of the Kannada flag".
