|Remark: The National Emblem of India
is derived from the time of the Emperor Ashoka. The
emblem is a replica of the Lion of Sarnath, near Varanasi
in Uttar Pradesh. The national emblem of India was
adapted by the Government of India on 26th January 1950.
The National emblem (out of the four lions only three
lions are visible and the fourth one is hidden from the
view) symbolises power, courage and confidence. It rests
on a circular abacus. At the centre of the Abacus, there
is a Chakra (wheel) which symbolises the Dharma Chakra
(Eternal wheel of law). The abacus is girded by four
smaller animals, guardians of the four directions: The
Lion of the North, The Elephant of the East, The
galloping Horse of
the South and The Bull of the West, separated by intervening wheels over a bell shaped lotus. The word Satyameva Jayate (truth alone triumphs) have been inscribed in Devanagari script. The National emblem of India is the official seal of the President of India and Central and State Governments. The National emblem is used only for official purposes and commands highest respect and loyalty. It is also a symbol of independent India's identity and sovereignty.
