The India flag consists of three horizontal stripes of even length. They are orange, white, and green. In the middle, there is a Ashoka Chakra, which is a 24-spoked blue wheel. The banner has the ratio 2:3. It was officially adopted on July 22, 1947, which was shortly after the nation gained independence from the United Kingdom.

The India flag is rich in symbolism. The color white stands for truth. The orange represents renunciation or disinterestedness (to show that the leaders of the nation are not just interested in material things). The color green represents the soil. The wheel represents peace, change, and dynamism.

The nation has had several other official banners before this one. Such India flag designs came about during the movement for independence. The nation is located in South Central Asia.

The capital city is New Delhi, but the largest city is Mumbai. The India flag belongs to a nation whose national anthem or song is titled “Jana Gana Mana”. The currency is the Rupee. The national motto is “Truth Alone Triumphs".
