” Under this flag, there is no difference between a prince and a peasant, between the rich and the poor, between man and women. ” ~Mrs. Sarojini Naidu~

The ratio of the width to the length of the flag is two is to three.

In the centre of the white band, there is a wheel in navy blue to indicate the Dharma Chakra, the wheel of law in the Sarnath Lion Capital.

This center symbol of the ‘CHAKRA’, is a Buddhist symbol dating back to 200th century BC.
Its diameter approximates the width of the white band and it has 24 spokes,

which intends to show that there is life in movement and death in stagnation.

The saffron stands for courage, sacrifice and the spirit of renunciation;

the white, for purity and truth;

the green for faith and fertility.
