Bhai Prabhu Singh jee...

What a coincidence. On my blog I have a post (that I posted today few hours you posted this picture)about the Nishan Sahib (our flag), where I said that I saw The Nishan Sahib somewhere on some one blog's about a couple of months ago that was not Saffron in color. As far as I remember, it was a multi colored flag with green, yellow and white in it. I dont recollect if this is the picture that I saw or if it was a Nishan Sahib standing on the ground. But anyways, I re-published an article from a website that gives the history of the Nishan Sahib and how the color that we use today universally, on the cloth to make Nishan Sahib came into being. It also explains the meaning of the "Khanda" that is on the flag.

Sarvjeet Singh Ji,

The bicolor flag (yellow/white with Khanda) is I think what the 3HO Sikhs use on their Asharams/Gurdwaras. I have seen it at the Espanola Gurdwara, and at pictures at some other places like you see here in Chile. May be Prabhu Singh can shed some light on it and tell us the significance behind the bicolor flag with Khanda. There must be a reason for this change from the traditional Sikh flag that used at most of the other Sikh Gurdwaras.

I'll pass commenting on the colour choice/alteration of the Khalsa flag....but what beautiful location! That is where I'd like to call my "home gurughar" :)

I agree with you on location. The flag question or comment is basically to learn for my own curiosity. It is a beautiful flag especially at a majestic location. Would make a perfect scene for a future Sikh movie project.
