The flag of India, also known as the tricolor, consists of three horizontal bands of equal width. The top band is saffron (orange), the middle band is white, and the bottom band is green. At the center of the white band is a navy blue wheel with 24 spokes, which is called the Ashoka Chakra. The saffron band represents courage and sacrifice, the white band represents peace and truth, and the green band represents faith and fertility. The Ashoka Chakra symbolizes the wheel of law, righteousness, and the cycles of time.
