Orange & Green colours of the Indian flag


India is a beautiful garden filled with colours.
When we look at the Indian flag, there are two colours "Orange and Green" that beautifully decorate the Indian flag and exist in the creative environment of the Indian harmony all over the world.
If someone wants to do it and thinks that after the deletion of one colur the original garden will remain as India, then he is mistaken. No one can deny the importance of the orange and green colours in the Indian flag.
Why not keep this lovely template of colours together and decorate our hearts with love and peace together?
By the way, the green colour of trees is always essential for the environment, giving all of us oxygen to breath?
