Why 3 colors are there can anyone explain me?

Balaganapathy Nt said: (Nov 29, 2012)  
There are three colors in India flag. All the color is equal horizontal bars. The deep saffron colors shows courage and sacrifice. The saffron color is also called the Bhagwa color, this is a symbol of Hinduism. The white color symbolism for peace, Purity and truth. The green color shows the culture and fertility. The blue colors for the sky and the ocean this is in Chakra. The Chakra has 24 spokes, representing the 24 hours in a day. The height of this flag is two-thirds the width.

Anyone can please explain me why the ratio is 2:3 is right answer?

Aditya Hukare said: (Aug 2, 2017)  
Why it is only 2:3, why not 4:3 or other?

Yash Tyagi said: (Aug 17, 2017)  
The correct answer is 2:3 only.

Riya said: (Aug 30, 2017)  
The Correct answer is 3:2.

Riya said: (Aug 30, 2017)  
Correct answer is 3:2.

I think green is on 7th rank, orange is on 15th rank, white is on 23 rank. If we deduct 15-7 =8 and 23-15 =8 so if we multiply 2*2*2=8 then the there are 3 times 2 and no is 2 so 3:2.

Vinay Pal said: (Nov 26, 2017)  
I think the Correct answer 3:2.
