Description

The one national-mascot that stands for and represents a country in the world arena is its National-Flag. The Indian Tricolour pays homage to our National-flag, the symbol that gives India its unique identity.

This book offers the readers a brief history of flags, their evolution and significance. It traces how our National-flag, Tiranga, came into being, took its present form, and how a young man fought for the right to fly his National-flag every day of the year. Comprehensive and interesting, this extensively researched book also comprises numerous illustrations, rare photographs and fascinating trivia on flags.

It is, undoubtedly, the ultimate reference book on flags in general, and an authority and guide on the Tiranga in particular.
