When Adopted -
   In 1931, All India Congress (AIC) session was held at Karachi (now at Pakistan). In that session a resolution was passed to adopt the national flag of India. A committee was formed to create its design. The design suggested by this committee was accepted by the congress working committee & we got our national flag.

Design of the Flag -
   According to that design - our national flag is of three colours - as saffron on the above of the flag, white colour is in the middle of our flag and green is underneath, with a Asoka Chakra on the white or middle of our flag. The three colours have their significance and characteristics of its own. The Saffron colour stands for our sacrifice and bravery and the white colour stands for truth and peace. Lastly the green colour stands for faith and power. In the middle of our flag, Asoka Chakra is the symbol of our (India's) culture and heritage. Some people gave the opinion that the Asoka chakra symbolizes the Sun - the power to eliminate darkness from the minds of Indian people. The measurement or ration of the national flag is 3:2 (Width 3 : Height 2)

Occasion for its use -
   The national flag is used on some special occasion. It is generally used on some national festivals. These are the Indian Independence day, the Republic day, and other days of national importance.

How it should be used -
   There are certain rules in our national flag. One cannot use it in any manner he likes. In hosting the flag it should not touch one's body. In using the flag, it should not be brought below the knee. And no other flag should be there on our national flag's right sight. In any procession the national flag should be carried in the fore-front. The post for hoisting of the flag in public function should not be less than 13 metres. The national flag should be hoisted half - mast to mourn the death of any national leader.
