The second letter “O” represent monuments and India’s cultural heritage, whereas the third “O” letter represents Indian art designs.
The fourth letter “G” takes the shape of elephant trunk placed over national bird peacock. The letter “L” is represented by Qutub Minar whereas the last letter “E” represents something that looks similar to marching contingents.
