Military personnel conducted what seemed to be their daily routine- lowering the National Flag and folding it respectfully

Further in the ocean, a ship was sailing. Subsequent zooming revealed that it was a cruise ship carrying tourists on board. It went for a small round in the Indian ocean and then returned towards the port area. 
An observer on a watch tower kept watch, under a flag which I couldn’t understand what… Looked like the Karnataka state flag inversed…
Just like Indian beaches, petty shops and hawkers to exist in Colombo beach, doing brisk business during the weekend evenings.
