Summary

Description
English: The Flag of India. The colours are saffron, white and green. The navy blue wheel in the center of the flag has a diameter approximately the width of the white band and is called Ashoka's Dharma Chakra, with 24 spokes (after Ashoka, the Great). Each spoke depicts one hour of the day, portraying the prevalence of righteousness all 24 hours of it.

The colors are in CIE 1931, so that will take a while to solve. However, this is what I got from the construction provided. Markup in Size 7 for the flag.
