The India flag, often referred to as the tricolor, comprises three horizontal bands of equal width. The upper band is saffron (orange), the middle band is white, and the lower band is green. Positioned in the center of the white band is a navy blue wheel with 24 spokes, known as the Ashoka Chakra.
Saffron symbolizes courage and sacrifice, white represents peace and truth, while green signifies faith and fertility. The Ashoka Chakra is emblematic of the wheel of law, righteousness, and the eternal cycles of time. Together, these elements encapsulate the rich tapestry of India’s history, culture, and aspirations for the future.
