New and special rangoli designs for Republic Day / Independence Day kolam themeThis is the latest addition in this theme for Republic Day and Independence Day for 2014. It is some what like a Sanskar Bharati rangoli where you have the background filled with rangoli powder of different colours. I have chosen orange white and green. I have added a pair of birds in blue. The birds are flying and so they denote or represent freedom. A simple rangoli that symbolically represents Independence Day and Republic Day.
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.
This rangoli design is also on the theme nature. Sprinkle rangoli powder of a suitable colour to get a background suitable for the birds designs drawn on the top. Draw a number of birds free hand (birds designs can be drawn as shown in this rangoli. There are a few more ways of drawing birds using rangoli powder and I will use them depending upon the theme and occasion. I have used a combination of white for the birds, orange for the beaks and green for the branches. The message conveyed is peace and freedom and the combination is colours is for Independence Day and Republic Day - depicting freedom and peace.
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.
