The national flag is based on the flag of the Indian National Congress designed by Pingali Venkayya.[2] The flag is a horizontal tricolour of "deep saffron" at the top, white in the middle, and green at the bottom. In the centre features a navy blue wheel with twenty-four spokes, known as the Ashoka Chakra, taken from the Lion Capital of Asoka erected atop Ashoka pillar at Sarnath. The diameter of this Chakra is three-fourths of the height of the white strip. The ratio of the width of the flag to its length is 2:3.
The flag was designed in 1921 by Pingali Venkayya, an agriculturist from Machilipatnam. The manufacture of national flags is regulated by three documents issued by the Bureau of Indian Standards. All of the flags are made out of khadi cloth and it could be either silk, cotton or wool.
