The ratio of width of the flag to its length is two to three . In the centre of the white band is a navy - blue wheel which represents the chakra. It's design is that of the wheel which appears on the abacus of the Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka. It's diameter approximates to the width of white band and it has 24 spokes . The design of the National Flag was adopted by the Constituent Assembly of India on 22 July, 1947
