The National Flag of India was adopted in its present form during an ad hoc meeting of the Constituent Assembly held on the 22nd of July 1947, a few days before India's independence from the British on the 15th of August 1947. It has served as the national flag of the Dominion of India between the 15th of August 1947 and the 26th of January 1950 and that of the Republic of India thereafter. In India, the term "tricolour" [Tiranga – (in Hindi)] almost always refers to the Indian national flag.

The flag is a horizontal tricolour of saffron at the top, white in the middle, and green at the bottom. In the centre, there is a navy blue wheel with twenty-four spokes, known as the Ashoka Chakra, taken from the Ashoka pillar at Sarnath. The diameter of this Chakra is three-fourths of the height of the white strip. The ratio of the height of the flag to its width is 2:3. The flag is also the Indian Army's war flag, hoisted daily on military installations.

The Indian National Flag was designed by Pingali Venkayya. The official flag specifications require that the flag be made only of "khadi," a special type of hand-spun yarn. The display and use of the flag are strictly enforced by the Indian Flag Code.
