    meaning
    Red: indicates the blood of the martyrs in defense of the homeland,

    Crescent: evidence of the Arab identity,
    Star : shows on the five principles of Islam.
    and the tunisian flag was adapted in 1831

    Do you know the meaning of "cheap"? Would you be able to take it if some Jain decides to mock your religion?

    He posted this video all over the forum. Apparently some angry member who is trolling here after getting banned on their original ID.
    Just hit the report button.

    Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The "Ashoka Chakra" in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change

    Thanks. Much appreciated.

    He isn't worth it. If people have noticed it and their reaction is like yours, that's good enough.

    The emblem of India is an adaptation of the Lion Capital of Ashoka at Sarnath, preserved in the Sarnath Museum.
    In the original Sarnath capital there are four Asiatic lions standing back to back - symbolizing power, courage, pride and confidence - mounted on a circular abacus. The abacus is girded with a frieze of sculptures in high relief of an elephant (of the east), a horse (of the south), a bull (of the west), and a lion (of the north), separated by intervening wheels, over a lotus in full bloom, exemplifying the fountainhead of life and creative inspiration. Carved out of a single block of polished sandstone, the capital is crowned by the Wheel of the Law (Dharma Chakra).
    In the emblem adopted by the government in 1950 only three lions are visible, the fourth being hidden from view. The wheel appears in relief in the centre of the abacus, with a bull on the right and a galloping horse on the left, and outlines of Dharma Chakras on the extreme right and left. The bell-shaped lotus beneath the abacus has been omitted.so, there are 5 lions in emblem of India. [1]
    Emperor Ashoka the Great erected the capital to mark the spot where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dharma and where the Buddhist Sangha was founded. Forming an integral part of the emblem is the motto inscribed below the abacus in Devanagari script: Satyameva jayate सत्यमेव जयते (English: Truth Alone Triumphs).[2] This is a quote from Mundaka Upanishad,[3] the concluding part of the sacred Hindu Vedas.
    This National Emblem was adopted on 26 January 1950, the day that India became a republic.[4]
    The emblem forms a part of the official letterhead of the Government of India, and appears on all Indian currency as well. It also sometimes functions as the national emblem of India in many places and appears prominently on Indian passports. The "Ashoka Chakra" (wheel) from its base has been placed onto the center of the National Flag of India

    Balls,

    saffron means Hindus,green means muslims and white is peace between them. Ashok Chakra is to avoid it looking like the Italian flag.

    For the uninitiated, that is actually a 3d emblem. There's a fourth lion at the back which cannot be seen on a 2d plane such as a paper.:)

    The words in Sanskrit mean, "Truth Alone Triumphs".
