This navy blue wheel is called the “Ashoka Chakra” and has been adapted from the Ashoka pillar in Sarnath.
The diameter of this Chakra is three-fourths of the width of the white stripe. The significance of the flag of India was clarified by India's first Vice-President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Saffron color signifies renunciation and disinterestedness in material gains. White color signifies light, the path of truth to guide us, and the green color at the bottom signifies fertility and our relation to soil.
The “Ashoka Chakra” with its 24 spokes signifies 24 hours of a day.
