In May 1972, a pearl-shaped tropical island in the Indian Ocean, second only to Hawaii in its bio-diversity and similar in size to Ireland, changed its name from the Dominion of Ceylon to the Free, Sovereign and Independent Republic of Sri Lanka. From that moment in global geographical history onwards, the travel and tea posters depicting colonial and post-colonial Ceylon became emblematic of a verdant, lost world of unrivalled mystique. In ceasing to exist, Ceylon became all the more enchanting.
