Evolution of India’s National Flag: How Has it Changed Over Time?
On August 7, 1906, in Kolkata’s Parsee Bagan Square, a flag with three horizontal stripes – green, yellow, and red – was unveiled.
Dr. Annie Besant and Lokmanya Tilak introduced the third variant during the Home Rule movement. The flag now boasted alternating red and green horizontal stripes, with the Union Jack in one corner.
In 1921, a young visionary from Andhra Pradesh presented a flag design to none other than Mahatma Gandhi himself.
