Description of the flag

I found an interesting historical page about the Kotte kingdom in Sri Lanka. There is a flag also. This is brief introduction:
"...Tamils and Sinhalese had lived as separate nations in their defined homelands; Tamils in the northern and eastern parts and the Sinhalese in the rest of the country. When the Portuguese invaded Sri Lanka at the beginning of the 16th century the Tamil kingdom, the Kingdom of Jaffna, was ruling the northern and eastern parts of the country; the Kingdom of Kotte was ruling the coastal areas of the western and southern Sri Lanka and the Kandyan Kingdom was ruling the central hills of the island.Kotte was the first to come under foreign influence and its rulers later in that century willingly transferred their sovereignty to the Portuguese king. The Jaffna Kingdom was conquered by the Portuguese in 1621 and the Kandyan Kingdom by the British in 1815. The sovereignty of Jaffna Kingdom, which passed to the colonial rulers through capture, should have reverted to the Tamil people at independence."
