Heritage and History of the Parsis of India

by Ashdeen Lilaowala

“Behold, the flag of independent India is born! It has been made sacred by the blood of young Indians who sacrificed their lives in its honour.

In the name of this flag, I appeal to lovers of freedom all over the world to support this struggle.” – Bhikaji Rustom Cama (1861-1936)

These profound words were said on August 22, 1907, at an International Socialist Conference in Stuttgart by Bhikaji Rustom Cama, who unfurled the first version of the Indian national flag—a tricolour of green, saffron, and red stripes.

A portrait of Madam Bhikaji Cama in a traditional Parsi kor sari and white sudreh with the flag hangs in the Rajya Sabha.
