INDIAN FLAG HISTORY The need for an Indian flag came in the start of the 20th century when the independence movement was on its zenith. Sister Nivedita a disciple of Swami Vivekananda came up with the first national flag in 1904. The flag then named as Sister Nivedita's flag.
The National flag of India is officially described in the Flag Code of India as follows: "The color of the top panel shall be India saffron (Kesari) and that of the bottom panel shall be India green. The middle panel shall be white, bearing at its center the design of Ashoka Chakra in navy blue color with 24 equally spaced spokes." The flag, by law, is to be made of khadi, a special type of hand-spun cloth of cotton or silk made popular by Mahatma Gandhi.
