National Emblem of India



National Emblem is adopted from the Sarnath Lion Capital of Asoka on January 26, 1950.  In this emblem, only three lions are visible, the fourth lion being hidden from view. The wheel appears in relief in the centre of the abacus with a bull on right and a horse on left. The bell-shaped lotus (as in the original) has been omitted. The other animals present in the emblem are - An Elephant and a Lion.  The words Satyameva Jayate are inscribed below the abacus in Devanagari script. These words are taken from Mundaka Upanishad.  SThe similar structure of Sarnath Lion capital was also found in Thailand.
