Why is blue the colour of Dalit resistance? (Read only for understanding)

1. Statues of B.R. Ambedkar wearing a three-piece blue suit and holding the Indian Constitution are seen in many villages and towns across the country.

2. Blue is also the colour of sky—a representation of non-discrimination, that under the sky everyone is believed to be equal

3. Ambedkar is known to have introduced the blue Mahar’s Flag as his party flag for the Independent Labour Party.

4. It is representative of identifying with Dalit consciousness that is non-discriminatory. It also appeals to the masses as in the blue-collar workers”.

There are many theories around this, but there is no settled history on why blue became the colour of Dalit resistance.
