Indian Flag Cookies

Happy Independence Day!

August 15th ------ What else day could be more special for an Indian…. So I have decided to celebrate this proud day with specially decorated cookies….. Yes flag shape cookies.

I made a plain sugar cookie and then covered it with a tri color fondant. I drew the wheel with edible writing ink pen.







Indian flag:
The Indian flag is a horizontal tricolour in equal proportion of deep saffron on the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom. The ratio of the width to the length of the flag is two is to three. In the centre of the white band, there is a wheel in navy blue to indicate the Dharma Chakra, the wheel of law in the Sarnath Lion Capital. This center symbol or the 'CHAKRA', is a Buddhist symbol dating back to 200th century BC.
The design of the National Flag of India was adopted by India's constituent assembly on 22nd july, 1947. It's use and display are regulated by a code.
The flag symbolizes freedom. The late Prime Minister Pandit Nehru called it a flag not only of freedom for ourselves, but a symbol of freedom for all people.
