The Kannada flag was designed by Ma Ramamurthy in the 1960s. This flag wdely use by pro-Kannada organisations and hoist during Kannada Rajyotsava on November 1.

The expert committee exploring the legality of bringing an official Karnataka state flag recently submitted a proposal to the government. The tricolour flag has yellow at the top, white in the middle and red at the bottom with the state emblem in the centre.

Various Kannada organisations have raised objections to the design. They want the widely recognised yellow and red 'Kannada flag' (hoisted on Nov. 1 every year to commemorate state formation) to be declared as the official state flag. This flag was designed by veteran Kannada activist 'Veera Senani' Ma Ramamurthy in the 1960s.
