About National Flag of India

  • Its proportion / ratio of the Flag is – 2 : 3

  • Mahatma Gandhi first proposed a flag to the Indian National Congress in 1921.

  • First Adopted in 22nd July 1947.

  • The flag was designed by Pingali Venkayya.

  • The philosopher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who later became India's first Vice President
and second President, clarified the adopted flag and described its significance as follows:

  • Bhagwa or the Saffron denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The "Ashoka Chakra" in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.
