Brigadier (Sri Lanka)
Brigadier (Brig) is a senior rank in the Sri Lanka Army.
Brigadier is a superior rank to Colonel, but inferior to Major-General. The rank has a NATO rank code of OF-6, equivalent to Commodore in the Sri Lanka Navy and Air Commodore in the Sri Lanka Air Force.
Initially Brigadier was not considered to be a General Officer rank by the Sri Lanka Army, however since the 1980s the rank has been considered a General Officer rank, some times designated with a single star. The rank insignia for a Brigadier is a Sri Lanka emblem over three "pips".
From 1949 to 1958, the Commander of the Ceylon Army held the rank of Brigadier.
