Meanwhile Pivituru Hela Urumaya stated that the same distorted flags similar to the national flag were displayed at Bring Back Mahinda protest rallies held in Kandy and Ratnapura.

The two green and orange colors stripes that represent minorities in the country had been noticeably omitted in these distorted flags.
