The history of Bali goes back thousands of years. Sembiran, in northern Bali, is believed to have been home to Ice Age inhabitants, evidenced by the discovery of stone axes and other tools. Further archeological discoveries such as sophisticated stone tools, agricultural techniques and basic pottery at Cekik in West Bali, are evidence of a settlement whose burial sites of around 100 people are believed to be from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age.
While there is a debate about Bali’s prehistoric history, there is ample proof of a well developed Megalithic culture. Nevertheless, good documentation about Balinese culture does not begin to emerge until the 8th or 9th century A.D. At this point the Balinese had already begun to practice various forms of Buddhism imported from India and there is evidence of Hindu influences as well.
Bali was inhabited by around 2000 BC by Austronesian peoples who migrated originally from Taiwan through Maritime Southeast Asia. Culturally and linguistically, the Balinese are thus closely related to the peoples of the Indonesian archipelago, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Oceania.
Little is known of the Bali flag, other than it is a provincial flag and not a civil flag. It is only flown within the governor’s office, inside parliament buildings, and perhaps during provincial events. It is rumored that the all Indonesian provinces have similar flags with their separate coats of arms adorning them that were designed using official government specs. While there is no law forbidding the use of the Bali flag by ordinary citizens, it is not often used by the general public.
As an Indonesian region, Bali actually flies under the red and white banner of Indonesia, which is known as the Sang Saka Merah Putih (The Red and White). This banner has two level groups, with red on top and white on the base. The red symbolizes courage while the white symbolizes the spiritual. The Indonesian banner was first flown on August seventeenth, 1945. The hues are adjusted from a banner flown in the thirteenth century amid the Majapahit Empire.
The banner was initially originated in Java in 1926 to protest Dutch manage, however, was banned for the rest of the Dutch occupation in Indonesia. There are unverified thoughts the present banner was really made when individuals from the Indonesian freedom development tore the base blue stripe from the dutch banner, leaving the red and white behind. The red and white banner from 1945 is named the Bendera Pusaka, which implies legacy, and is still safeguarded. For the special events, the Flag Company Inc invented beautiful decals and flags for the history support.
