The three colors of the Indian flag represent strength, peace and the fertility and growth of the country. In the center stripe of the Indian flag is a blue wheel that represents the Dharma Chakra.

The top horizontal stripe on the Indian flag is saffron in color and this represents the strength and courage of the people in India. The middle stripe is white and is symbolic of the peace that the Indian people want. The bottom stripe is green and is designed to show the growth of the land. The flag has been redesigned several times since it was first designed in 1906.
