Amazon has removed the advertisement promoting doormats and other products misusing the Sri Lanka's national flag, says Sri Lankan embassy in China.

The embassy said immediately upon receiving the information, it informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China and requested it to take action to stop the production of door mats and any such products, misusing the Sri Lanka flag.

“The company which marketed the product on Amazon was requested by letter from the Embassy to immediately cease selling the door mats and any such products, misusing the Sri Lanka flag."

“The advertisement has been removed from Amazon now,” the embassy said in a press release.

The Embassy said it was closely monitoring this matter and “will take appropriate action through the relevant authorities in China to stop the production and selling of any product with the image of Sri Lanka the flag.”
