Independence Day Special: Every independent nation in the world has its own flag. It is a symbol of a free country. The National Flag of India was adopted in its present form during the meeting of the Constituent Assembly held on 22 July 1947. In India, the term “tricolor” refers to the Indian national flag. The national flag of India is a horizontal tricolor with equal proportions of dark saffron (kesari) at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom. The ratio of the width of the flag to its length is two to three. In the center of the white stripe is a dark blue wheel that represents the circle. Its design is that of the wheel which is in Sarnath. Its diameter is almost equal to the width of the white strip and it has 24 spokes.

The national flag of India has saffron on the top, which signifies the strength and courage of the country. The white color in the middle indicates peace and truth with the Dharma Chakra. The last stripe is green in color indicating the fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land. This Dharma Chakra depicts the “Wheel of Law” at the Sarnath Singh capital built by the Mauryan emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BC. Chakra wants to tell that there is movement in life and death in stagnation.

The national flag can be flown in educational institutions (schools, colleges, sports camps, scout camps, etc.) to inspire respect for the flag. Pledge of allegiance has also been included in the flag hoisting in schools. Any member of a public, private organization or educational institution may hoist or display the National Flag on all days and occasions in keeping with the dignity and respect of the National Flag. Section 2 of the new code recognizes the right of all private citizens to fly the flag on their premises.

The flag cannot be used for communal benefit, drapery or clothing. Do not deliberately throw the flag on the ground or floor at all. It cannot be draped over the hoods, tops, and sides or rear of vehicles, trains, boats, or aircraft. No other flag or bunting may be placed on top of the flag. Also, nothing including flowers or garlands or emblems may be placed on or above the flag.
