flagged

Today, I asked my Srilankan friend, "why does your country flag have a lion in it?"
He replied, "Dont know, maybe because the LTTE have a tiger as their symbol?"

Its true! Thats what he said. Though he later clarified that its rather the other way round, as obviously, Srilanka came into being first; before the tamil liberation movement.

I guess its coz they're "Sinha-lese". Sinha = Simha = Lion. Therefore the Lion must be their national or sacred animal.
