Evolution of the Tricolor in the Indian National Flag

It is absolutely astounding to understand the different variations that our Indian National Flag went within following its 1st initiation. It was identified or recognized through our national fight for independence. The progression of the Indian National Flag navigated through several difficulties to come to everything it is now. In a way, it displays the political progress of the country.
Given below are the changes that the Indian national flag went through:
  1. The first Indian national flag in India is known to have been raised on 7th August in the year 1906 in Calcutta that is now known as Kolkata. The Indian national flag was formed of 3 horizontal stripes of the color red, yellow, and green.
  2. The second Indian national flag was raised in Paris by Madame Cama and her group of expatriated revolutionists in the year 1907. This was very comparable to the first Indian national flag but that the first strip had only 1 lotus but 7 stars indicating the Saptarishi. This Indian national flag was also presented at a socialist convention in Berlin.
  3. The third Indian national flag was hoisted up in the year 1917 when our administrative strife had received a sharp turn. Dr. Annie Besant & Lokmanya Tilak raised the Indian national flag through the Home rule movement. This Indian National flag had 5 red & 4 green horizontal bands organized alternately, with 7 stars in the saptarishi arrangement super foisted on them. In the left-hand top corner, at the pole tip was the Union Jack. There was additionally a white crescent and star in one curve.
  4. The fourth Indian national flag was created during the concourse of the All India Congress Committee which assembled at Bezwada, now known as Vijayawada in the year 1921. An Andhra juvenility made an Indian national flag and delivered it to Mahatma Gandhiji. It was produced up of 2 colors- Red and green. Both the colors depicting the 2 significant associations i.e. Hindus & Muslims. Later, Mahatma Gandhiji proposed the summation of a white strip to describe the outstanding associations of India & the spinning wheel to symbolize the development of the country.
  5. The fifth Indian national flag was created in the year 1931 and was a milestone in the memoir of the Indian national flag. A decision was announced to adopt a Tricolor flag as the Indian national flag. This flag, the forbear of the existing one. It had saffron, white and green with Mahatma Gandhiji's spinning wheel at the middle. It was, though, explicitly affirmed that it showed no collective importance and meant to be understood so.
  6. The sixth and the very current existing Indian national flag was adopted on 22nd July in the year 1947. The Constituent Assembly chose it as Free Indian National Flag. Following the coming of Independence, the colors and their importance continued to be the same. Just the Dharma Charkha of Emperor Ashoka was chosen in the position of Mahatma Gandhiji's spinning wheel as the emblem on the Indian national flag. Therefore, the tricolor Indian national flag of the Congress Party ultimately enhanced the tricolor national flag of Independent India.
