India 1947 Ashoka Lions 1 and half annas - Postage stamps and postal history of India - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

'The Lion Capital of Asoka' adorns the second stamp, issued by the Government of India on Dec. in independent India and was the first stamp meant for domestic use.

The National Emblem of India is derived from the time of the Emperor Ashoka. The emblem is a replica of the Lion of Sarnath, near Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. The Lion Capital was erected in the third century BC by Emperor Ashoka to mark the spot where Buddha first proclaimed his gospel of peace and emancipation to the four quarters of the world. The national emblem is thus symbolic of the contemporary India’s re-affirmation of its ancient commitment to world peace and goodwill.

"Satyamev Jayate": It is inscribed in Devanagari script at the base of the Indian national emblem. The emblem is an adaptation of the Lion Capital of Asoka which was erected around 250 BC
