Ashok Chakra represents the 360 degree full circle of unstoppable continuous progress day and night, as it has 24 spokes representing 24 hours of a day (including night). So, originally it was designed to encourage coninuous progess of India day & night, but now it has become mere symolic for the progress of India as a whole, as our politicians and bureaucrats have made their aim of day & night progress of their own self interest by hook or by crook at the cost of the common man of India.

When Buddha achieved nirvana at Gaya, he came to Sarnath on the outskirts of Varanasi. There he found his four disciples who had earlier abandoned him. he preached his first sermon to them, thereby, according to tradition, setting in movement the Dhramachakra.

This is the motif taken up by Ashoka and portrayed on top of his pillars.

This is the origin of the chakra in our flag and it asserts the strong ties of our country with the Buddhist faith.

The preamble of the flag code of India

Significance
The preamble of the flag code of India describes the significance of the colors and the chakra in the 'Tiranga'. It was amply described by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan in the Constituent Assembly that unanimously adopted the National Flag. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan explained:

“Bhagwa or the saffron colour"
“Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation of disinterestedness.

Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work.

 

“The WHITE colour" 

The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct.

 

“The GREEN colour"

The green shows our relation to soil, our relation to the plant life here on which all other life depends.

 

The Ashoka Wheel in the center"

The Ashoka Wheel in the center of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principles of those who work under this flag.

The Ashoka Wheel

 

 

The Ashoka Wheel in the center of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principles of those who work under this flag.

 

******************************

 

 

We the citizens should be well aware about..

 

 

Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principles of those who work under this flag,

 

 

and so we want to know more about the ideology behind

 

 

the SIGNIFICANCE in our National Flag and National Emblem.

Thanks for the query.

Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, second President of India, clarified and described the significance of the Indian Flag as -

"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."
