The Calcutta Flag
The Calcutta Flag
The Calcutta Flag was one of the first unofficial flags of India. It was designed by Sachindra Prasad Bose and unfurled on August 7, 1906 at Parsi Bagan Square (Greer Park), Calcutta.

The flag had three horizontal bands of equal width with the top being orange, the centre yellow and the bottom green in colour. It had eight half-opened lotus flowers on the top stripe representing the eight provinces of India and a picture of the sun and a crescent moon on the bottom stripe. Vande Mataram meaning "I do homage to the mother" was inscribed in the centre in Sanskrit.
