History of our Flag.

Flags used during the Indian independence movement


20th Century Pre-Independence Calcutta Flag of India.png
Three horizontal bands of equal width with the top being orange, the centre yellow, and the bottom green. It had eight half-opened lotus flowers on the top stripe, and a picture of the sun and a crescent moon on the bottom stripe. (Vande Mataram) was inscribed in the centre inDevanagari

Flag of India 1917.svg
1917Flag of the Home Rule Movement
Five red and four green horizontal stripes
On the upper left quadrant was the Union Jack, which signified the Dominion status that the movement sought to achieve. A crescent and a star, both in white, are set in top fly. Seven white stars are arranged as in the Saptarishiconstellation (the constellation Ursa Major), which is sacred to Hindus.1921 India flag.svg

1921Gandhi's flag, introduced at the Indian National Congress meeting in 1921

1931 Flag of India.svg
1923'1947The Swaraj Flag, officially adopted by the Congress in 1931

AzadHindFlag.png
1942'1945Flag of Provisional Government of Free IndiaThree horizontal strips of saffron, white, and green, with a springing tiger in the center
Although this symbolized the armed resistance of the Azad Hind Movement lead by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose (as opposed to Gandhianpacifism), the 1931 flag of the Indian National Congress was used when the Indian National Army hoisted its flag in MoirangManipur. Both flags were used interchangeably.
