How will the new flag be different?
The Naval Service was renamed the Royal Indian Navy on 2 October 1934. And when the armies of India and Pakistan were formed after partition, the Navy was divided into the Royal Indian Navy and the Royal Pakistan Navy. After this, on 26 January 1950, the word Royal was removed from the Indian Navy and renamed the Indian Navy. Before independence, the British flag remained in the upper corner of the naval ensign. Tricolor was replaced instead. According to the information received now, the sign of the cross will be removed in the new flag. The cross made into the flag is the symbol of St. George.
