History of Tricolour:
An Indian flag was reportedly designed by Sister Nivedita, an Irish disciple of Swami Vivekananda. On August 7, 1906, the national flag first time was hoisted in Parsee Bagan in Kolkata.
Several changes continued to be made till 1931 that emerged as a landmark in the history of our tricolour. It was important that the flag depicted the ethos of the nation and did not have any religious forbearance. The Congress Committee met in Karachi and adopted the tricolour as our national flag.
The final and current tricolour came about in 1947. The flag is based on the Swaraj flag designed by Pingali Venkaya. Saffron on top symbolises “strength and courage”, white in the middle represents “peace and truth” and green at the bottom stands for “fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land”. The Ashok Chakra with 24 spokes replaced the spinning wheel as the emblem on the flag. It is intended “to show that there is life in movement and death in stagnation”.
A resolution was passed in the Congress Committee to make this as the official flag of India. This was also the battle ensign of the Indian National Army. On July 22, 1947, the Constituent Assembly adopted it as independent India’s National Flag.
