We are Indians and our National Flag is very important for us. It is the symbol of unity, honour and freedom. This flag is referred to as the Tiranga. It has three colors. They are saffron, white and green.
The saffron at the top means sacrifice, strength, and courage. The white in the middle indicates peace, truth and purity. The green at the lower part stands for fertility and energy. The blue wheel with 24 spokes in the middle represents Dharma Chakra of King Ashoka. It means peace and progress.
The National Flag is an emblem of national dignity. It is hoisted on special national days such as Independence day, Republic day, Gandhi Jayanti, etc. It is hoisted in all important government buildings. We are proud of our national flag.
On the occasion of Independence Day, the Prime Minister of India, hoists the National Flag and addresses to the nation. On this day, the National Flag is also hoisted at several places such as offices, schools, communities, societies, etc.
We honor and respect our national flag. Far from being a piece of cloth, our National Flag is a symbol of dignity and freedom for all of us.
