Independence Day 2022: India is all set to celebrate its 75 years of Independence on August 15, 2022. The 75 glorious years of India's development and Independence will be highlighted on this day along with the parade and speech at the Red Fort. Independence Day 2022 in India will also be a reminder of the country's rich history which makes it what the country is today. Like many other symbols, Ashok Chakra also is also symbolic of India's Independence and was included in the middle of the National Flag of India. 

The Ashoka Chakra is the depiction of the “Dharmachakra” which is represented with 24 spokes. Ashok Chakra is also called the wheel of duty. On the occasion of 75th Independence Day, let us find out the meaning of the 24 spokes of Ashok Chakra. 

Spokes in Ashoka Chakra

There are 24 spokes in the Ashoka Chakra which represent 24 qualities of a person. In other words, these spokes can be termed as the 24 religious paths made for humans. All the paths mentioned in the Ashok Chakra will lead any country on the path of progress. This is probably the reason that the designers of our National Flag removed the Charkha from it and put the Ashok Chakra in the middle of the flag.
