Our logo recalls the Sri Lankan flag. 

  • The Lion symbolizes the bravery of the Sinhalese.
  • The four bo leaves in the corners represent the four concepts of Buddhism (Karuna, Mudita, Upeksha, and Metta).
  • The two stripes represent the Sri Lankan Tamils and Muslims respectively.
  • The border of the flag represents the unity of the nation.
