The Indian flag has three horizontal stripes in orange, white and green. There is a dark blue wheel in the middle of the white stripe.

Each part of the flag has a special meaning.

The orange stripe represents the Hindus of India

The green stripe represents the Muslims of India

The white stripe represents the hope that the two can live in peace together

The wheel is an ancient Buddhist symbol. It stands for peaceful change.

The 26 spokes of the wheel represent the 26 states of India.

The flag was adopted in 1947, when India gained independence from British.
