The colours - yellow and red in the flag represent Arrishna (Turmeric which is yellow) and Kumkuma (Vermilion which is red) to symbolize auspiciousness and well-being of the Kannadigas and the state of Karnataka.The final approved State flag is Yellow, White with yellow colors and has the state emblem in the middle. The re-designing of the flag was undertaken by a committee headed by Siddaramaiah, Chairperson of the Kannada Development Authority.
At the heart of the flag is the official emblem of the state, the coat of arms of the erstwhile state of Mysore. It has yellow, white and red from top to bottom with Karnataka Govt.'s logo/emblem at the Centre. For years, there has been a demand to recognise it as the state's official flag, the report said.
A nine-member committee had in February submitted a favourable report recommending such a flag for the state almost nine months after it was constituted.
"The state cabinet had asked me to take a decision after taking the opinion of pro-Kannada organisations and intellectuals", Siddaramaiah said.
Pointing out that the state can not declare its flag by itself and it requires approval from the Centre, Siddaramaiah said, "So we will immediately send it to the central government". He said that there was no bar on state flags in the Constitution and all states can have their own flags. The state had recently witnessed huge protests over Hindi imposition by the Centre. Siddaramaiah took the lead in Indian States by becoming the first chief-minister to introduce a separate flag for the State at a function held in Bangalore yesterday. The meeting was attended by representatives of Kannada organisations, littérateurs and official representatives. "But, the State flag will always fly below the National flag, as prescribed", said Siddaramaiah. This unofficial flag is flown every year on November 1 - the state's formation day.
