The flag represents every nation. It shows the pride and prestige of our nation. If you have insulted your flag, it means the country’s tax. That’s why something like this should be done consciously. Insulting the national emblem should be treated as a punishable offence. Only then will people be afraid and hesitate before doing so. They say neither ‘Bhaya Bin Preet Na Hoy’. In this context, somewhere we have to express our views, at that time we start feeling discomfort. Keeping this in mind, we are presenting some speeches in small and big words before you.
Short and Long Speech on National Flag of India in English
Speech – 1
I extend a warm welcome to all the visiting dignitaries. I would like to express my gratitude to my headmaster, who considered me worthy and gave me this opportunity to share my thoughts with you on this matter.
The name of our national flag is tricolor. It is made up of three colors – saffron, white and green. These colors have importance, as well as their justification. It has three parallel strips. Saffron has taken the top spot, then white in the middle and finally dark green. In the middle of the white stripe is a dark blue circle. This Chakra is taken from the Ashoka Pillar at Sarnath. It has twenty-four spokes. It teaches us that we must keep going. Life is the name of walking. These twenty-four spokes represent the twenty-four hours of the day. Its diameter is the same as that of the white stripe.
The draft of our flag was approved by the Constituent Assembly of India on 22 July 1947.
According to the Flag Code of India 2002, which came into force from 26 January 2002, the Flag Code of India is a collection of laws, traditions, procedures, and instructions. According to the Flag Code of India, there is no restriction in the hoisting of the national flag in common citizens, government and private institutions, educational institutions, etc. But it is to be noted in this regard that no one can misuse the national emblem. This has been said in the ‘Act 1950’. Also, its compliance is mandatory as per the provisions of the ‘Prevention of Insults to National Pride, Act 1976’.
This was some information about our flag, which I wanted to share with you guys. With these words I end my speech.

Respected Headmaster, Honorable Guest Sir, I salute the fellow teachers and give many blessings to my dear students. I am grateful to all of you who come here by taking out your valuable time. Many thanks to all of you.
Today we all have gathered here to talk about our ‘Tricolour’ symbolizing the pride of our nation. As we all know, the national flag is the symbol of every nation. With this the dignity of the country is attached. Its respect means the respect of the country and you must have understood the meaning of its humiliation.
It is the moral duty of every common man to respect his country and its symbols. When you don’t respect your own thing, why and how will someone else do it? Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that we protect and respect the symbols and heritage of our country.
Our national flag, which we also know as ‘Tricolor’. It is called tricolor because it is made up of three colours. The uppermost band is saffron, the middle is white and the last is dark green. Ashoka Chakra is present in the middle of its white stripe. It is dark blue in colour. The Ashoka Chakra is derived from the Ashoka Pillar at Sarnath. The Ashoka Chakra has twenty-four spokes which represent the twenty-four hours of the day. It teaches us that we should keep going in life. To stop is like death. Whatever the situation, we must keep moving.
Every color of it definitely teaches us something or the other. Saffron color symbolizes the strength and courage of the country. White color symbolizes peace and truth. Green color represents greenery and growth.
Ashoka Chakra is also known as Dharma Chakra. The ratio of the length and width of the flag is 3:2. This is standard. We cannot accept any change in its length and width.
These were some things about our flag, which we all need to know. With these words, I end my speech.

I greet all the people present here. I extend my heartfelt respect and felicitations to all the dignitaries present here. It is a matter of great pleasure for me, that I got the opportunity to speak in front of experienced and scholars like you. I am indebted to my senior teacher sir, who gave me this opportunity. Today we will discuss some points about the pride of our country.
The national flag of India, which we also know as the tricolor, is adorned with parallel stripes of three colours. Its concept was given by Pingali Venkaiah. It was adopted on 22 July 1947 in the meeting of our Constituent Assembly even before independence. And a few days after that we got independence on 15th August 1947.
According to the national flag specifications, it should be made only in Khadi, there is such a provision. Made from a special type of hand spun cloth that was popularized by Mahatma Gandhi. You cannot use any other cloth. It is considered illegal. Only Karnataka Khadi Village Industries Joint Association reserves the right to manufacture our national flag. No one else. It is made in a very special way. And special care is taken of its honor.
Our national flag is a symbol of unity and integrity of the country. Its parallel form looks very attractive. The saffron color on the topmost strip signifies selflessness and dedication. The white color on the middle band represents peace and harmony. In the middle is the dark blue Dharma-Chakra, taken from the Ashoka Pillar at Sarnath. The third strip is dark green, which is a symbol of greenery and prosperity.
The flag is hoisted on any special occasion, such as Independence Day, Republic Day. The common citizen has the freedom to wave the flag in his homes, offices, etc. But under no circumstances should our flag be disrespected.
Let us know some special and interesting things about the tricolor.
To pay respect to the martyrs who died on the country and the great personalities of the country, they are wrapped in waves. This is a matter of great pride. It is the wish of every soldier that he should get a chance to drape in the tricolour. We cannot even think like this and the brave soldiers of our country, laughing and sacrificing their lives for the country.
When the jawan is rapped in the tricolour, many things are taken care of. The upper part of the flag (the saffron part) is carried towards the head and the green striped part towards the feet. Before the burning of the dead body, the tricolor is removed respectfully.
The country’s highest flag is hoisted at a height of 493 meters in ‘Ranchi’, the capital of Jharkhand state of India.
A committee has been formed for the respect and honor of the national flag, which can inform the general public regarding its use. It is known as the Flag Code of India (Flag Court of India). It is not only a flag but also a symbol of our hopes and aspirations. An attempt has been made to bring together all the rules, instructions and formalities in the Flag Code of India-2002.
There are also basic rules for hoisting the flag –
- The flag should always be flown in such a place from where it is clearly visible.
- With the same enthusiasm and gaiety that the national flag is hoisted, it should be lowered slowly with equal respect.
- The flag cannot be thrown anywhere.
- If it becomes muddy or dirty, it should be disposed of alone.
- The national flag is flown at half-mast only in times of national mourning.
- Nothing should be printed or written on the flag.
- It cannot be compared with any other flag.
- Its place will always be paramount, no other flag can be flown over it.
- No flag can stand like the national flag.
- The national flag should be in standard size only. No one can give it any shape or form with his mind.
These are some important things about our national flag, which we all as citizens of India should know. With these things, I would like to order to end my speech.
