In my reply to your question I mentioned I remembered a flag with a
complete spinning wheel in the middle of the flag which was the symbol
of the Indian Independence Movement.
Below is what Googles writes about the flag
The flag was used by the Provisional Government of Free India during the
Second World War. The final resolution on the flag was passed when the
Congress committee met at Karachi in 1931. The tricolour flag then
adopted was designed by Pingali Venkayya. The featured three horizontal
trips of saffron (for courage), white (for truth and peace) and green
(faith and propserity) with a Spinning wheel (symbolised the economic
regeneration of India and the industriousness of its people ) in the center.
This should answer some of the questions.
