Evolution of National Flag
The bitter truth in the history of our country is that we never actually had a National Flag for the whole India. The land on which we are living today called India was never been one nation in the ancient time. There have been many communities, tribes and dynasties which existed in the past which had their respective norms and regulations followed by them. The kingdoms which ruled India had their respective flags but a National Flag for the entire Indian region never actually existed. India finally able to present a National Flag which represents in the whole country in the year 1947 after being struggled for decades.
Birth of Tiranga
By the beginning of 1947, the roots of British rulers were loosening from the land of India. Louis Francis was the last Viceroy of British Rule of India, who made the historic announcement on 24th March 1947 of British government to free India on 3rd June, 1947. With the announcement, the leaders of Nation started thinking to have a national flag which should be acceptable to all political flag committee. Dr. Rajendra Prasad had designed the flag for British free India.
