Symbols {41} ~ Khanda

The Khanda represents the Sikh doctrine Deg Tegh Fateh, and is made up of four weapons. A double-edged khanda (sword) in the centre, a chakkar and two single-edged swords, or kirpan, crossed at the bottom. The weapons represent the dual characteristics of Miri-Piri, which shows integration of spiritual and temporal sovereignty.
