The Coat of Arms or sometimes called the Emblem of India.

This was adopted as the National Emblem pf India in January 11950. History notes the 26th January 1950 to be the Independence Day for India. The emblem of India shows four Indian Lions  standing but in a resting position on top of a circular abacus. The fourth Indian Lion is at the rear therefore cannot not be seen from the front view.

The circular abacus has four smaller animals and these are called the guardians pf the four directions. This can be clearly seen as the Lion of the NORTH, The Elephant of the East, The Horse of the South and the Bull of the West.

In turn the abacus rests of a Sacred Water Lily in full bloom showing the fountainhead of life!!! The Emblem symbolizes that the nation is “Valiant in Courage, Strong in Body, Politic in Council and a Foe to Fear. Again inscribed below the abacus translates as “Truth Alone Triumphs”.

Did you know that the Emblem forms part of the Official Letterhead of the Government of India and that it appears on the Indian currency and diplomatic and National passports alike???
