A flag is a symbolic representation of a particular nation and it tells a lot about the country. The way we have our try colours, different nations have their own flag. It represents that it is a free nation and also represents the cultural and social richness of a country. I have brought some sets of speeches and hope it will help you.
Short and Long Speeches on National Flag of India
Speech 1 – Indian National Flag
Respected Principal Sir, my dear Teachers, and lovely brothers and sisters, I am Anshika of class 3 B, and I am going to deliver my consideration on this topic. First of all, I would like to thank my team members for giving me this responsibility and believing in me.
A flag is nothing more than a piece of cloth with some symbols but these symbols and colours tell a lot about a country. The history of the flag is unknown because people used it for ages and we also find its evidence in our ancient mythologies.
In the beginning, it used to be just of a single colour but slowly symbols got their importance on a flag. Different countries have different flags and sometimes they represent their historical importance, whereas sometimes they represent the cultural importance of a country.
Similarly, we also have our flag which is of tricolours; it represents the history as well as the present scenario of our nation. Our national flag contains three colours and the very first colour is saffron which represents the sacrifice of our brave freedom fighters. The second one is white which represents peace and harmony in the nation and the third colour is green, which represents the agricultural richness of our country.
In this way we have a flag representing our nation, hope you liked the information and with these words, I would like to sum up my speech.
Speech 2 – Tri Colours of India
A warm greeting to all of you, today on this special occasion I am here to deliver my speech on the topic ‘Tri Colours of India’.
All of us know the freedom struggle we had in our history and it was our brave fighters who brought freedom for us and to honour their effort, we had a flag representing them as well as our country.
The flag went on different reforms and changes then we have the present flag. It was 7 August 1906 when the first national flag was hoisted in Kolkata. It was of three colours with green on the top following yellow and then red, with some symbols on each of them. But again, in the year 1907, Madame Cama hoisted a new flag in Paris.
The race didn’t stop here, the third flag came into existence in 1917 and it was proposed by Dr. Annie Besant and Lokmanya Tilak. Then in the year 1921, the Andhra youth represented a new flag.
Finally, in 1931 we got a flag which was quite similar to our present flag. It had a spinning wheel instead of a wheel. Then in the year 1947 on the 22nd of July, it was Pingali Venkayya who proposed the present model of the flag. It was finally selected and hoisted as our national flag on the occasion of independence on the 15th of August 1947.
The journey of our national flag is interesting because each of them has a story behind it. The tricolours of our flag represent different things. Starting from the first Saffron represents the strength of our country. White represents peace and the green stands for our agricultural background and farmers. The Dharma Chakra in the centre represents the path of truth and has 24 strings representing 24 hours of a day. The Dharma Chakra inspires us to work hard and keep on moving.
India is an amazing country with an amazing history and rich cultural and social heritage. Our flag represents us and our country so; we should always respect it and should handle it with care.
Speech 3 – National Flag: Our Pride
Honourable principal sir, respected teachers, and my dear friends today I am going to represent a speech on our National Flag. First of all, I would like to thank my teachers for choosing this topic, because there is a lot to know about our flag. Today I will give you some detailed information and hope you will like it.
We live in India and we have our national animal, the national flower, national symbol, etc. But sometimes we want something that could represent our nation. For example, if you have been called in an Olympic meet where all players have to participate in an introduction walk. As an audience how you will know which nation is representing itself. So, we use our flag, it is not just an Olympic meet needs a flag, there are many such things and places where we need a flag.
A flag is something that tells a lot about a country as well as its background. Every nation has its own flag and we also have our national flag in the form of tricolours. It has three colours and the first one is saffron, then white, and then green in the last.
All three colours have different meanings. Starting from the top the saffron represents the blood of bravery and sacrifice of our freedom fighters. White represents peace with an Ashok chakra in the middle. The Chakra is called Dharma Charka representing life and it contains 24 strings which represent the 24 hours of a day. It represents that life must go on and in the last, there is a green colour. Green was dedicated to our farmers and the agricultural background of our country.
While talking about its size, one can make a flag on any size but the length and breadth should always be in a ratio of two by three. We got our flag on the 22nd of July in the year 1947 and it was made by Pingali Venkayya. Then on the occasion of Independence Day, it was hoisted and was publicly announced as the national flag of India.
The history of a normal flag is very old and you would also have seen them in our Ramayana and Mahabharata. Arjun had his own flag and people use to identify him from his flag. So, when we talk about the existence of a flag then the story will never end. But the making of our National flag is quite interesting.
The first national flag was introduced in the year 1906 in Kolkata. Soon in 1907, Madame Cama hoisted a flag in Paris. She addressed it as our national flag but the journey continued. Again in 1917, another flag was proposed. Then in 1921, some groups of people made another flag. Finally, it was 1931 when a model was proposed which was quite similar to our present flag. With some changes in the year 1947, we got our pride which was our National Flag.
It was a proud moment and also many tears rolled out when people saw their flag. Today we cannot feel that because we never witnessed slavery, poverty, and many other drawbacks which our ancestors faced. But really it was an amazing moment that we celebrate even today.
There are some sets of rules also made with our flag and they are, a flag should never touch ground or water. We should always remove the flag after sunset, you cannot tear or burn the national flag, and many more and you should know them.
At the end of my speech, I would like to say that, respect your flag, respect your nation, and be a good citizen of India. Thank you!
