It was adopted in its present form during a meeting of the Constituent Assembly held on 22 July 1947, and it became the official flag of the India on 15 August 1947. The flag was subsequently retained as that of the Republic of India. In India, the term "tricolour" (Hindi: तिरंगा, Tiraṅgā) almost always refers to the Indian national flag.
