Default Is my Rajapuri banana plant flowering? Pictures attached

My Rajapuri banana plant is 3 years old. It has not produced fruits. Noticed smaller size leaves on it. Is it the flag leaf? Does it looks like it is going to flower?

Hard to tell if it's torn/miss-shaped leaves or a pre-flag. Plant looks like it could be close to a flower. You will know for sure in a few days. Keep us updated.

I thought the same thing, but in pic 4 you can see the last leaf was much shorter than the others, so it looks good.

Maybe longer... It seems like the flower takes forever to come out and bloom, then it pops out a hand or two a day for a few days, then the real wait is on for them to ripen... 5 months for my Brazilians. I have read of some waiting almost a year for bananas to ripen. A lot of patience is needed.
