Did you know who designed our national flag?

Pingali Venkayya, who was born in Andhra Pradesh and was a keen agriculturalist and geologist, came up with the initial design for the tricolor national flag. The design was similar to the Calcutta flag, one of the unofficial Indian flags in the early 1900’s.The saffron represents courage and strength, the white stands for peace and truth, while the green symbolizes fertility of the land and growth.
