8/13/2018 11:45:07 AMVisitors: 647

<p>The National flag of India is a horizontal tricolor of <strong>deep saffron (kesari) at the top</strong>, <strong>white in the middle</strong> and <strong>dark green at the bottom</strong> in equal proportion. The <strong>ratio</strong> of<strong> width </strong>of the flag <strong>to</strong> its <strong>length</strong> is <strong>two to three.</strong> In the centre of the white band is a <strong>navy blue wheel</strong> which <strong>represents the chakra</strong>. Its design is that of the wheel which appears on the abacus of the <strong>Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka.</strong> Its diameter approximates to the width of the white band and <strong>it has 24 spokes</strong>. The flag was <strong>designed by Pingali Venkayya</strong>. Name of national flag is called Tiranga or tricolor. It was <strong>adopted in its present form on July 22, 1947</strong> when it became official flag. As per the Indian laws,<strong> the national flag is to be made up of khadi</strong>. <strong>The first national flag in India was hoisted on August 7, 1906, in the Parsee Bagan Square (Green Park) in Calcutta now Kolkata.</strong></p> <p>The top band is of <strong>Saffron </strong>colour, indicating the <strong>strength and courage of the country</strong>.</p> <p>The <strong>white </strong>middle band indicates <strong>peace and truth with Dharma Chakra</strong>.</p> <p>The last band is <strong>green </strong>in colour shows the <strong>fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land.</strong></p> <p>This <strong>Dharma Chakra</strong> depicted the <strong>"wheel of the law"</strong> in the Sarnath Lion Capital made by the 3rd-century BC Mauryan Emperor Ashoka. The chakra intends to show that there is life in movement and death in stagnation.</p> <p>On <strong>26th January 2002</strong>, the <strong>Indian flag code was modified </strong>and after several years of independence, the <strong>citizens of India were finally allowed to hoist the Indian flag over their homes, offices and factories on any day and not just National days</strong> as was the case earlier. Now Indians can proudly display the national flag any where and any time, as long as the provisions of the Flag Code are strictly followed to avoid any disrespect to the tricolour. For the sake of convenience, Flag Code of India, 2002, has been divided into three parts. Part I of the Code contains general description of the National Flag. Part II of the Code is devoted to the display of the National Flag by members of public, private organizations, educational institutions, etc. Part III of the Code relates to display of the National Flag by Central and State governments and their organisations and agencies.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>There are some <strong>rules and regulations upon how to fly the flag, based on the 26 January 2002 legislation</strong>. These include the following:</p> <div><strong>The Do's:</strong></div> <div> <ul> <li>The National Flag may be hoisted in educational institutions (schools, colleges, sports camps, scout camps, etc.) to inspire respect for the Flag. An oath of allegiance has been included in the flag hoisting in schools.</li> <li>A member of public, a private organization or an educational institution may hoist/display the National Flag on all days and occasions, ceremonial or otherwise consistent with the dignity and honour of the National Flag.</li> <li>Section 2 of the new code accepts the right of all private citizens to fly the flag on their premises.</li> </ul> <div><strong>The Don'ts:</strong></div> <div> <ul> <li>The flag cannot be used for communal gains, drapery, or clothes. As far as possible, it should be flown from sunrise to sunset, irrespective of the weather.</li> <li>The flag cannot be intentionally allowed to touch the ground or the floor or trail in water. It cannot be draped over the hood, top, and sides or back of vehicles, trains, boats or aircraft.</li> <li>No other flag or bunting can be placed higher than the flag. Also, no object, including flowers or garlands or emblems can be placed on or above the flag. The tricolour cannot be used as a festoon, rosette or bunting.</li> </ul> </div> </div>
