Importance of the three colours in the Indian National Flag

Submitted by Lisha on

The Indian National Flag has three colours - Orange (saffron), White and Green, along with the central Ashoka Chakra. What does each of these colours and the Chakra signify?

Saffron: Courage and Sacrifice; White: Purity and Truth; Green: Growth and Auspiciousness. My interpretation goes like this: From Courage and Sacrifice we have got the Freedom, through purity and truth we should move towards growth and progress.

Can you make our nation flag with only those mentioned three colours? Have you ever noticed our national flag carefully? Our national flag has four colours: a Saffron, White, Green and Blue colured circle at the centre. The three colured you have specified describes an ITALIAN flag, to be exact, a HUNGARY or IRELAND flag not an INDIAN one. Your interpretation mute on blue coloured CHAKRA.

The saffron color is also called the Bhagwa color, this is a symbol of Hindusm.The white color symbolism for peace, unity and truth. The green color shows the culture and fertility. The blue colors for the sky and the ocean this is in Chakra. The Chakra has 24 spokes, representing the 24 hours in a day. The height of this flag is two-thirds the width
