Correct Answer - Option 1 : July 22, 1947

The correct answer is July 22, 1947.

  • On July 22 1947, the Indian Tricolour was adopted by the Constituent Assembly.
  • It served as the national flag of the Dominion of India between 15 August 1947 and 26 January 1950 and then, as the Republic of India thereafter.
  • 22nd July is also celebrated as the Flag Adoption Day.
  • In 1921, Venkayya met Gandhi in Vijayawada and presented a rudimentary design of the flag. The flag was consisted of two red and green bands to symbolise Hindus and Muslims.
  • However, Gandhi made some changes to it. He added a white band to symbolise peace and a charkha to represent self-reliance on the recommendations of Lala Hansraj.

  • The National flag of India is a horizontal tricolour of deep saffron (kesari) at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in equal proportion.
  • The ratio of width of the flag to its length is two to three. In the centre of the white band is a navy blue wheel which represents the chakra.
  • Its design is that of the wheel which appears on the abacus of the Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka.
