When Did Ceylon Became Sri Lanka?


what is Sri Lanka's historical name?

Sri Lanka has had many names in ancient times. It was once called Heladiva. When the Portugese arrived in the 16th century they called it Ceilao which was tranlated to Ceylon in English. The name stayed Ceylon until 1972 when it became the Free, Sovereign and Independent Republic of Sri Lanka. In 1978 the name was changed and is now offically the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is found south of what nation?

Sri Lanka is also south of Russia. A far distance, but still ...

Sri Lanka is just west of the southern part of India. They export a lot of Ceylon Tea. I wonder why.

I have a Replogle World Oceans globe by LeRoy M. Tolman that has Rhodesia still on it. How old is it?

It also still says Ceylon for Sri Lanka and Yugoslavia for, well, Yugoslavia!

Yugoslavia began to break up most recently, starting in 1992.

Ceylon became known as Sri Lanka in 1972.

It depends upon whether or not your map denotes Rhodesia as a British colony, or an independent entity. In the latter case, it existed as an unrecognised state from 1965-1979.

I would like more data points, but the ones so far suggest that your map is from between 1965-1972.
