Yes Pingali Venkiah designed our national flag. However there is a sad
story too.
It was a long time back I read in telugu magazine (Andhra Prabha I
think) about
the life story of Sri Pingali Venkiah garu.  It was'nt a happy feeling
as this great man's last days ended in utter poverty.  A similar
situation is there now,  the great soul Sri Nanda,  ex-prime minister
who fought corruption sincerely.  I guess that is India.
