In 1947, the Indian Constitution Assembly adopted the Indian National Flag, which was designed by Pingali Venkayya. It is celebrated across all of India on the 22nd of July under the title “Indian National Flag Adoption Day”.
The red, white, and blue stripes of India’s flag represent the country’s values. The saffron stripe (at the top) represents courage and sacrifice; the green stripe at the bottom represents peace and prosperity; and the white stripe in the middle represents truth, benevolence, and integrity. India’s national flag features a spinning wheel called an Ashoka Chakra (a symbol of India) in navy blue color that has 24 spokes representing each state.
From “Khadi Development and Village Industries Commission” and “Karnataka Khadi Gramodyoga Samyukta Sangha”, the flag is distributed to other regions.
