How to Draw Indian Flags

Flags are used on many things to indicate a language, nationality, country, state or place of manufacture. The Indian national flag is a horizontal rectangular tricolour design with stripe colours of deep saffron, white and India green. In the centre of the middle white stripe is the Ashoka Chakra -- a navy 24-spoke wheel. The Indian flag was adopted in 1947 following independence from Britain. You can learn to draw an Indian flag, but make sure you draw the correct proportions for the stripes and wheel.
