  • Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah with the Karnataka flag. Once approved Karnataka will become only the second state to have a separate flag after Jammu and Kashmir

Terming the move "historic", Karnataka's Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said in a tweet that he will now write to Government of India to make the State Flag official. The re-designing of the flag was undertaken by a committee headed by Siddaramaiah, Chairperson of the Kannada Development Authority.

The new flag, called "Naada Dhwaja" in Kannada, is has white stripe in between two stripes of colours yellow and red.

If the Centre agrees to the proposal, Karnataka will become the second Indian state to have a separate State flag, after Jammu and Kashmir.

At the heart of the flag is the official emblem of the state, the coat of arms of the erstwhile state of Mysore. The flag's colours symbolise piety or forgiveness (yellow), truth and peace (white), bravery (red).

The unofficial but widely regarded yellow and red "Kannada flag" that is hoisted in the state on November one? every year to commemorate the state formation day and used in the form of a scarf by Kannada activists, was designed in the 1960s.

A nine member committee was formed to design a "state" flag and submit a report on giving it legal sanctity.

The proposal will be now sent to the Union Home Ministry for approval since a State has no powers to announce its own flag.

For years, Amazon has been taking steps to attract more customers and has focused efforts on targeting low-income Americans and millennials.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who has been cleverly playing the Kannada identity politics and invoke the spirit of Kannada pride, has made it clear that a separate flag for a State is not unconstitutional as there is no specific bar on State's having separate flags.

It also sports the "ganda bherunda" or the two headed eagle in the middle.

The new flag of Karnataka has been finalised.

The Congress and the main opposition BJP had been in the ire regarding the flag issue.

In 2012, the BJP-led government had refused to meet the same demand. "There is no objection for states to have a separate flag in the Constitution".

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

Pani says the move could reap electoral benefits if the BJP continues with its out-of-state campaign strategy in the run-up to the elections. "Siddaramaiah sat on this decision for four years and has used it now because of his political troubles", Prakash said.
