National Emblem



National Emblem of India is adapted from the Sarnath Lion capital. This was the capital of famous legendry king Ashoka. King Ashoka made this sculpture of four lions attached from backs. The forth lion is always invisible, only three can be seen from a side. These lions are mounted on an abacus. T he Lion Capital was erected in the third century BC by Emperor Ashoka to mark the spot where the Buddha first proclaimed his gospel of peace and emancipation. The capital is erected atop an Ashoka Pillar. At the abacus various symbols are made each has its own meaning. There is a motto written on abacus Satyameva Jayate (Truth Alone Triumphs).

The national emblem is thus symbolic of contemporary India's reaffirmation of its ancient commitment to truthfulness, world peace and goodwill.
