India’s National flag is a horizontal tricolour of deep saffron (Kesari) at the top, white in the middle and green at the bottom. In the center of the white band is a navy blue wheel (chakra). Its design is that of the wheel which appears on the abacus of the Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka.
Its diameter approximates to the width of the white band and it has 24 spokes. The ratio of the width and length of the flag is 2:3. The Constituent Assembly of India adopted the design of the national flag on July 22, 1947.
The colour saffron represents sacrifice –The colour of flame.
The colour white represents Nobility.
The colour green represents Prosperity.
