Indian Flag – Tiranga
The Indian flag is in tri-color; deep saffron at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in equal proportions. It is called as Tiranga (tri-color). Each color has its own significance. Saffron color stands for courage, sacrifice and the spirit of renunciation. The white color stands for truth, purity where as green color stands for peace and prosperity. The Ashoka Chakra (wheel) represents the Laws of Dharma (righteousness). Let us try to make our own Tiranga.
- White sheet of construction paper
- small wood stick (similar to pipe-cleaners but little wider and longer)
- markers or crayons (saffron, white and green color), drawing pencil
- Cut the construction paper in to a shape of horizontal rectangle.
- Make three equal portions of the rectangle you made by drawing two horizontal lines.
- Using markers or crayons, color each portion of the rectangle; top portion with saffron color, middle portion with white color and bottom portion with Green color.
- Draw a spinning wheel in the middle of the flag as shown in the picture.
- Glue the wooden stick to the left back side of the flag as shown in the picture. Spare some portion of the stick from the bottom so that you can hold it.
Your “Tiranga” is ready!!!
