Description:
The Star of India can refer to a group of flags used during the period of British rule in India. British India (officially known as the Indian Empire) had a range of flags for different purposes during its existence. The flags included the Union Flag with the insignia of the Order of the Star of India superimposed, or the Red or Blue Ensign with the Star of India superimposed. The official state flag for use on land was the Union Flag of the United Kingdom and it was this flag that was lowered on Independence Day in 1947.

While the Blue Ensign was used for military and auxiliary naval ships the Red Ensign was used for representing India in most international Events. White Ensign was used by naval representing India naval ship. The Star of India had a star with the words Heaven's light our guide around them, and was the badge of the Order of the Star of India, a chivalric order of knighthood. A blue state (government) ensign also existed, was defaced with a lion holding a Tudor Crown.

The Star of India flags were replaced by the Tiranga (Indian Tricolour) after Independence on the 15th of August 1947 in the independent Union of India.
