Kalama Tawya Banner
The Buddhist Flag was first designed by Col. Henry Steele Olcott in 1955 with 5 colours representing Buddha's five perfections and Dhamma. Over the years, we have wished to improve and revitalise the flag, but never had the appropriate chance.
But now that we have made some inroad into our Kalama Tawya Center project, we have ventured to introduce Kalama Tawya Banner. Doing this we do not intend to deny the works of our predecessors, but in contrary, with the aim of promoting the spirit of the old design. Looking at Kalama Tawya Banner, one can see the colours of the traditional flag, only with new design, composition while retaining the older respected spirit.
Also, as this banner is used only inside Kalama Tawya Center, we are not too concerned about slandering criticism from others. Trolling good intentions and vilifying artistic creativity would happen any time but we will not shy away from making this positive step forward.
