The first stripe: Saffron colour
The saffron (केसर) colour depicts the courage (साहस) and selflessness (निस्सवार्थता) of the nation. It is also a religiously (धार्मिकता से) significant (महत्वपूर्ण) colour for many religions in India and therefore (इसलिए) represents India’s secularism (धर्मनिरपेक्षता). It reminds (याद दिलाना) leaders to devote (समर्पित करना) themselves to the nation without looking for any personal benefits.
The middle stripe: White colour
The white colour on the national flag represents purity (पवित्रता), honesty (ईमानदारी) and peace (शांति) of the nation. It reminds the political leaders (राजनीतिक नेताओं) to lead (नेतृत्व करना) the country towards its goals by maintaining (बनाये रखना) the state of peace.
The last stripe: Green Colour
The green colour in the flag depicts faith (विश्वास), fertility (उर्वरता) and prosperity (समृद्धि) of the nation. According to Indian philosophy (शास्र), green colour is a festive (उत्सव संबंधी) and stabilizing (स्थिर बनाना) color that represents life and happiness.
The Ashok Chakra
Lord buddha explained (व्याख्या करना) the Dharmachakra to Ashoka. It is called the Ashok chakra because king Ashoka used it as on his edicts (फ़र्मान). The Chakra denotes motion (क्रियाशील). There is death in stagnation (विकासहीनता). Ashok Chakra contains 24 spokes (छड़) in the centre which represents the 24 precious hours (कीमती घंटे) of the whole day. Navy blue colour of the Ashok Chakra indicates the most truth of the universe (ब्रह्मांड की सच्चाई). It represents the color of sky and ocean.
The National flag is hoisted (फहराया) every year on Independence Day by the Prime Minister at the Red Fort in Delhi.
