Though this post was originally meant for Republic Day in India I have added rangoli for Independence Day also in this post because the theme is the same. Though different methods or types of rangoli or possible for these two days I prefer to use the three colours white, orange and green to symbolically represent these very important days in India. The rangoli below a free hand design with two parallel lines ( I have used them quite a lot ) drawn in white. The design is as usual a floral design with layers of petals expanding the rangoli from the centre. On the border some spiral patterns and petals are drawn. Fill up the design with orange and green choosing the colours to get this design.
The central star design is drawn with green and orange lines drawn parallel simultaneously. Along the star design floral petals are drawn again with the two colours. Above the petals spiral patterns are drawn again with same colours. Then the white colour is drawn between the green and orange colours. The rangoli is also decorated with orange, white and green lines and dots as shown. This type of rangoli can be drawn for Independence Day also.
