WHY BABA SUGGESTED A SEVEN-COLORED FLAG
Naval prepared a flag accordingly and, after it was sewn, it was hoisted near the Master's Jhopdi in the evening. As the flag stirred, Baba remarked, "Do you know why I suggested a seven-colored flag? The seven colors represent the seven planes of consciousness."
Meher Baba then specified the positioning of two colors: "Red should be at the bottom of the flag and sky blue at the top. Arrangement of the other five colors is your decision."
Then he later added: "Besides representing the seven planes of consciousness, these colors also represent sanskaras impressions. The colors in the flag signifies man's rise from the grossest of impressions of lust and anger symbolized by red to the culmination in the highest state of spirituality and oneness with God symbolized by sky blue."
