THE ORIGINAL FLAG OF CEYLON (SRI LANKA)

In 2015, received a formal response stating that the Heritage Manager on behalf of the Royal Hospital Chelsea Group, according to the records the flag post independence, was one that Royal Hospital Chelsea did not actually have in a complete form as it had previously deteriorated beyond the point of display or indeed recognition.

Unfortunately the Royal Hospital Chelsea does not have the original flag of Sri Lanka any longer as it deteriorated beyond the point of no return many decades ago and was consigned with others to National Army Museum for recording and disposal.
