New Sikh Ekab Singh Posted January 14, 2021 Report Share Posted January 14, 2021 As per my understanding ...Khanda on Sikh flags is a recent addition and is not a symbol given by Guru ji. please see post by by Serjinder Singh https://www.sikhnet.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?p=12326. The current Khanda began to evolve after the British occupied Panjab. A new battalion known as Rattray's Sikhs which became 45 Sikhs of the British Indian Army was set up soon after 1849. The soldiers of this battalion used to have an insignia pinned on the front of their turbans that was just a circle or a chakar on the top of which there used to be a khanda standing upright with the handle of the khanda touching the upper edge of the Chakkar. ... Kesari color was given by mahants to assimilate Sikhs as Hindus to bhagwa color of Hindus.... As far as I know first 5 Guru ji had a white flag ...6th Guru gave us yellow color and he called the flag Basanti ...10th master gave us blue.... Why do we have rituals for them I dont know... we are suppossed to be out of rituals.... 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
