The website at http://www.np.gov.lk/pdf/Flag.pdf shows this flag as the old Northeast Province flag with a blue border. It states:
- blue border indicates ocean resource
- green indicates the greenery and agriculture in the Province
- red indicates labour and industriousness
- white indicates fraternity, peace and co-existence
- radiating sun indicates synergy of power and natural energy source.
Size of the flag - 126 x 72 cm
