A flower to commemorate war heroes- President

(Colombo Lankapuvath May 23) It is necessary to name a flower of our own to commemorate the Sri Lankan heroes of war who have saved this country from the menace of terrorism said President Mahinda Rajapaksa addressing the War Heroes Felicitation Ceremony held at Parliamentary grounds last evening (22).

The President also said that the world still commemorates those heroes of war who
