The fans association also said that they are planning to send requests to 'Shivaji' to authorise the symbols.
The fans released the flag and announced the party's name as 'Desiya Dravida Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (DDMMK).'The tricolour flag, in red, white and black, features Rajinikanth's face inside a shining star, was released during the Manram's (association) meeting.
