Chennimalai Kumaran (1904 -1932), was an Indian revolutionary who participated in the Indian independence movement. Kumaran was born in Chennimalai, a small town in the Erode District in Tamil Nadu. He died from injuries sustained from a police assault near river Noiyal during a protest march against the British colonial government on January 11, 1932. At the time of his death, he was holding the flag of the Indian Nationalists, which had been banned by the British.[1]

Kumaran founded Desa Bandhu Youth Association. The government has erected his statue in a park by the railway station in Tirupur. Kumaran is revered as a martyr in Tamil Nadu and is known by the epithet Kodi Kaththa Kumaran (Kumaran who saved the Flag).[2][full citation needed]

A commemorative stamp was issued in October 2004, on his 100th birth anniversary.[3] His statue in Tirupur is used as a focal point for public demonstrations.[4]
