Tricolor flag at the best CBSE school in Coimbatore ! Yes, it is all about Independence day ! Do you know its history? While flags have been in existence for centuries together now, their origins are not so certain. From places ranging from Egypt to India and China, where they are believed to have made an appearance in ancient times, their origins are a bit hazy. The first flag of Denmark adopted way back in 1478 and which is still in use, is considered the oldest national flag.
There is something about flags that is inspirational. India’s Tricolour, also called ‘Tiranga’ (because of its three colored band) has continued to be the source of inspiration for all of us. The flag reminds us of the tremendous sacrifices made by our freedom fighters, thousands of whom made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives, for our country to gain freedom. The flag also inspires us and makes our heart swell with pride whenever it is hoisted, reminding us of the greatness of our country.
Design of the tricolor
The design of the tricolor is based on the Swaraj flag of the Indian National Congress that was designed by Pingali Venkayya, a freedom fighter from Andhra Pradesh. The flag was adopted during a meeting of the constituent assembly, held just before independence on 22 nd July 1947. It became the official flag once India attained independence from the British rule on 15 th August, 1947.
The Dharma Chakra
The Tiranga as it is popularly referred to, consists of three horizontal stripes in three colours – saffron, white and green. While saffron represents courage and sacrifice, white represents peace and truth, while the green band represents faith and chivalry. At the centre of the flag is the ‘Ashoka Chakra’ a 24-spoke wheel. The navy blue Ashoka Chakra is also called the ‘Dharma Chakra’. A set of rules have been formulated for hoisting the Indian national flag. Detailed information about the do’s and don’ts of hoisting the Indian national flag can be found on online sources.
