Description of the flag

At the last Vex Congress of Burgos, Carlos Fernandez Espeso, Spanish ambassador to India, told me about the Jain flag. He wrote an article some time ago that was published in a Bulletin (I don't remember which). The article, if I understood correctly, quoted the flag and the previous symbol of Jains in India. The swastika symbol was adopted in 1975. The previous symbol was the Loka-Akasa. The swastica has existed as a symbol in India from 3000 BC and its use by Hitler in later years is not relevant to the Jains.

Variant of the flag

[Flag of Jains] by Roman Kogovsek, 24 June 2005

I have seen this flag in the major Jain temple in Kolkata. It is orange with a red swastika symbol in its center.
