तिरंग्यांचा इतिहास

8/12/2016 8:09:00 AM

तिरंग्यांचा इतिहास भारताच्या स्वातंत्र्यलढय़ावेळी भारतीयांना सतत प्रेरणा मिळत राहणे आवश्यक होते. त्यासाठी झेंडा हे प्रतीक सवरेत्तम असल्याचे मानले गेले. १९0४ मध्ये स्वामी विवेकानंदांच्या शिष्या भगिनी निवेदिता यांनी प्रथम एक झेंडा बनविला. तो पुढे निवेदितांचा झेंडा म्हणून ओळखला जाऊ लागला २२ ऑगस्ट १९0७ रोजी र्जमनीतील स्टुटगार्ट शहरात भिकाजी कामा यांनी आणखी एक तिरंगा फडकविला. या तिरंग्यामध्ये वरची पट्टी हिरवी, मधली पट्टी भगवी, तर खालची लाल रंगाची होती. यामध्ये हिरवा रंग हा इस्लामचा, तर भगवा रंग हा हिंदू व बौद्ध धर्माचे प्रतीक असल्याचे मानले गेले. हिरव्या पट्टय़ामध्ये असलेली आठ कमळ फुले त्यावेळच्या ब्रिटिश हिंदुस्थानातील आठ प्रांतांची प्रतीके होती. मधल्या पट्टय़ात देवनागरीमध्ये 'वंदे मातरम्' लिहिलेले होते. खालच्या पट्टय़ात एकीकडे चंद्रकोर, तर दुसरीकडे सूर्य होता. भिकाजी कामा, स्वातंत्र्यवीर सावरकर आणि श्यामजी कृष्ण वर्मा या तिघांनी हा झेंडा बनविला होता. पहिल्या महायुद्धादरम्यान हा झेंडा 'बर्लिन कमिटी फ्लॅग' म्हणून ओळखला जाऊ लागला. स्वातंत्र्यपूर्वी, स्वतंत्र भारताचा राष्ट्रीय झेंडा काय असावा,

After the assignation of John P. Saunders who was an Assistant Superintendent of Police, the british government was shaken from the roots. They should have found out the reasons for the discontent. Instead they took more repressive measures. They brought a bill named ‘Defence of India Act ’. It gave the police a free hand. Now they can arrest persons to stop processions. In addition to that they can also arrest suspicious persons whom they thought were involved in anti british activities. The whole country was against the bill. These days Bhagat Singh was hiding from the police. When he heard about the bill he was unhappy. He decided to protest. He along with Batukeshwar Dutt planned to throw a bomb in the Central Assembly Hall while the session was going on. Their motive was to protest in a peaceful way. They didn’t want to hurt anybody. They also decided to throw pamphlets about Indian Independence. Furthermore they decided not to run away from the scene. On April
