Quoting the Indian news agency "ANI", 5 May 2010:
"Keen to reduce the differences between Hindus and Muslims, craftsmen in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi have made a flag symbolizing communal harmony.
"The flag is made up of three colours. The green colour symbolizes our religion i.e., Islam, white colour symbolizes peace and saffron is the colour of Hindus. All the colours will send a healthy message," said Azam Ali Bhutto, another flag maker.
The flag costing Rs 1,50,000 would be given to the holy shrine of Varanasi on June 5."
I have not been able to find anything else on this flag, whose exact design remains to be described.
