About Tamangsaling

One of the proposed states is the Tamangsaling Autonomous State Council sponsored by the Federal Democratic National Forum and envisioned as a state for Tamang ethnic group. Tamangs, of Tibeto-Burman origin, constitute 5.6% of the Nepali population and number 1,280,000, slightly more than Newars. They live on the Tibetan border, are the Tibetan Buddhists and many were recruited to the Indian and British Gurkha regiments and served as a mountain guides in the Himalayas.

The flag of the Tamangsaling Autonomous State Council comes from the Manifesto of the sponsoring party, but there is also another flag, documented by the photographs, where instead the red star with the white circle in the middle is a full red star surrounded by the circle of thirteen, smaller red stars.
