Mervyn Removes Red And Green Flags

Mar 2, 2011 12:59:23 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Public Relations and Public Affairs Minister Mervyn Silva has said that he had brought down all the red and green flags in the Kelaniya District.

Silva has reportedly said that the red and green flags have been sent them to their designated places in respect of the religions they represent.

According to the minister, the color blue belonged to God Vishnu before it became the color of the SLFP and since Lord Vishnu was present in Kelaniya it was suitable for the blue flags to be hung in the area.

Silva has said that since the color red represents Lord Katharagama, the red flags have been sent to Katharagama while the green flags have been sent to the Mosque.
