History: the indian flag is in this picture, it has 3 stripes, green white and saffron and a chakra in the middle. The saffron (an orangy color) stripe stands for dedication and sacrifice. The white stands for truth and the green stripe stands for the fertility and growth of the land. The chakra stands for “the idea that there is life in movement and death in stagnation.”

Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation's founders and heroes.
