The Indian national flag, often known as the tricolour, is made up of three horizontal stripes of equal width. The top band is saffron, white in the middle, and green at the bottom. The Ashoka Chakra, a 24-spoke navy blue wheel, is at the center of the flag.
It was accepted in its current form at a sitting of the Constituent Assembly on 22 July 1947, and it became the official flag of the Dominion of India on 15 August 1947. It is still the flag of the Republic of India. The term “tricolour” mainly refers to the national flag in India. The flag is based on the Swaraj flag, which was designed for the Indian National Congress by Pingali Venkayya.
The flag is required by law to be fashioned of khadi, a type of hand-spun cotton or silk popularized by Mahatma Gandhi. The Bureau of Indian Standards outlines the flag's production process and requirements. The Khadi Development and Village Industries Commission owns the right to make the flag, which it distributes to regional groups. The Karnataka Khadi Gramodyoga Samyukta Sangha was the sole maker of the flag as of 2009.
The Flag Code of India, as well as other legislation, govern the use of the flag. Except on national holidays like as Independence Day and Republic Day, the original legislation prohibited private persons from using the flag. In response to a plea by private person Naveen Jindal, the Supreme Court of India authorized the Government of India to change the legislation to allow private citizens to use the flag in 2002.
Following that, the Union Cabinet of India revised the code to allow for limited use. The legislation was updated again in 2005 to allow for further uses, such as alterations on certain types of apparel. The flag code also specifies how to fly the flag and how to use it in conjunction with other national and non-national flags.
