Several distorted Sri Lanka flags were raised at a rally staged in Kandy today.

The rally was staged by the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) where several proposals were made in the presence of a large number of monks and others.

At the rally several people were seen holding distorted Sri Lanka flags while some people also got onto the stage at the end of the rally and waved the distorted flags.

The flags did not have the two green and orange colour stripes that represent the minorities in Sri Lanka.

Most Muslim shops in Kandy were closed today ahead of the BBS rally fearing attacks. (Colombo Gazette)
