Adopted July 22, 1947 [1]
Designed by Indian National Congress (?)
Proportions 2:3 [2]

The National Flag of India is a horizontal rectangular tricolour of saffron, white and green; with the Ashoka Chakra, a 24-spoke wheel, rendered in a Navy-blue color on the white background.

Symbolism[]

Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centr is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The "Ashoka Chakra" in the center of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. (The symbolism is that the impermanent things of the life are the spokes, while the spiritually permanent thing (the Truth) is the center.). Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.
