Why is National Flag Day Celebrated?
National Flag Day is observed to commemorate the day in 1947 when the Indian National Congress adopted the tricolor as the official flag of independent India. The day serves as a reminder of the valor and determination of the freedom fighters who devoted their lives to secure the nation’s freedom, years of struggle and sacrifice, symbolizing the triumph of India over colonial rule.
Design of the Tricolor
The design of the Indian National Flag is a masterpiece that encapsulates the essence of the nation’s identity. Created by Pingali Venkayya, a freedom fighter and visionary, the tricolor features three horizontal stripes of equal width-saffron at the top, white in the middle, and green at the bottom.The saffron represents courage and sacrifice, the white signifies truth and peace, while the green symbolizes faith, fertility, and valor. The Ashoka Chakra, a navy blue wheel with 24 spokes, is placed at the center of the white stripe, representing law and dharma.
Unity in Diversity
