1. Freedom Fighters and Their Quotes
Try customizing your shirts with the sketches and photos of your favorite historical heroes. Caricatures can also be made if you want to add an element of fun. Quotes of freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh ("Inqlaab Zindabad") and by Subhash Chandra Bose ("Tum Mujhe Khoon Do, Mai Tumhe Azadi Dunga") are still relevant today. It has been 73 years since India has gained Independence, and yet, the powerful words of our freedom fighters never fail to give us goosebumps.

You can also go for figures like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, etc. Their quotes make for a definitive style statement and you can wear them with pride.
2. Patriotic Dialogues from Movies
Prints inspired by famous movie dialogues add an element of nostalgia to your look and look high key cool. These days the phrase from the movie Uri: The Surgical Strike, "how's the Josh" is an excellent example. Vicky Kaushal starring this film is the pictorial demonstration of what our Indian army did on the land of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). Also, prints of posters from these movie posters can be a good look. Vintage posters from the iconic movie like Mother India (1957) and Shaheed (1965) look fashionable too.
Dialogues from movies like Rang de Basanti, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Airlift, Chak De India, Lagaan ignite in us a sense of patriotism.
Also, lyrics from patriotic songs are a good choice. Songs like Maa Tujhe Salaam, Bharat Humko Jaan Se Pyaara Hai, Ae Watan, and Mere Desh Ki Dharti Sona Ugle are very popular.
3. The Magic of Different States of India
Different states of India have different cultures and traditions and also each state has its unique qualities. Wearing a cool tee to show off your city or state is a great way to express your Indian attitude.
4. The Indian Army
The Indian Army needs no introduction. We all have love, respect, and admiration for our soldiers and the Indian army as a whole. Indian army before independence (under British rule) had participated in World War I and II. After independence, it has also fought many full-fledged wars. A cool tee saluting our Indian heroes is a great way to pay our respects to them. Also, camo tees are a great and popular fashion statement and a symbol or a short phrase will look great on them.
5. Unity in Diversity
We Indians come from different castes, religions, cultures, and backgrounds but when it comes to defending our country, we come together as one. Unity in diversity is a famous concept which best fits on India. We can never forget the freedom movements run by the people of all religions of India to make India an independent country. We can also match these T-shirts with our friends or co-workers and is a great way to show the message of being united against all enemies.
6. Apna Tiranga
Orange, white and green have become a symbol of nationalism. The saffron color of our national flag stands for the country's courage and strength, the white represents truth and peace, while the green represents growth and fertility. Indians hold high regard for their flag. We can have patriotic quotes or national symbols on these colors. They represent our country to the world and show secularism and diversity. Also, there can be so much variety and designs that we can have with these colors as they are so versatile.
Despite the shortcomings of our country, we Indians feel proud of everything our country has done for us and serve it with all our hearts. Fashion is a great way to create change and express our feelings towards our country uniquely.
