Sikh Khanda

The Sikh symbol Sikh Khanda

The Khanda (Punjabi: ਖੰਡਾ, khaṇḍā) is one of the most important symbols of Sikhism alongside the Ik Onkar. The khanda is like a "coat of arms' for Sikhs. It was introduced by the sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind Ji. It is an amalgam of three symbols,[1] represented by three different items. It is commonly found on the Nishan Sahib or flag of the Sikhs, anywhere in a Gurudwara.

Nishan Sahib

The Sikh flag Nishan Sahib

Nishan Sahib is the name given to the flag which is seen flying outside every Sikh Gurdwara (Temple). It is a triangular piece of ochre or saffron coloured cloth with the Khanda emblem in the middle. The flagpost also has a khanda or spear on top and is usually covered with the same cloth as the flag. The use of the Nishan Sahib was first introduced by Guru Hargobind.

"There is Only One God". The first 2 words in the Guru Granth Sahib & main cornerstones of Sikhism. It is combination of 2 characters, numeral ੧, Ikk (one) & first letter of word Onkar (Constant taken to mean God) - which also happens to be the 1st letter of Gurmukhī - an ūṛā, ੳ, coupled with adapted vowel symbol hōṛā, yielding ਓ.
