The flag of Puthiya Tamilagam is red-green horizontal bicolor. The color shades may vary somewhat, but the most widely used ones are R+ and V++. The ratio is usually 2:3 or very close, although it also seems to vary sometimes, giving a bit more or less oblong flags. However, there is also a very distinctive variant, with the ratio 2:1 (height larger than width), which also appears frequently, although less than the usual 2:3 variant. There are also examples of both variants used together.
