I can suggest good symbol which is adhering all the rules as mentioned in contest. Symbol is |~
Its simple and can be typed from keyboard. This symbol somehow represents “Fluttering and waving Flag” like Indian Flag representing glory of India.

Trust our Government to take a half-baked approach to things, without even considering the costs involved for implementing such an exercise...

I heard by my friend. but Rs. 500/- for entry fees is not good approached by the government.

puru said...

Bank draft of Rs. 500 with entries!! LOL! Still then, many will send entries for the competition!

The final five entries to get Rs. 25K each and final Rs. 2,50,000/- Looks like Govt. will collect this amount with the entries only, huh?

Arvinder said...

Like rest of the comments, even I cant understand that how do I restrict my imagination to keyboard keys. Govt shud explain this and in fact Govt shud change this clause. Otherwise wats d point of designing.

You will find whatever, you suggested as part of it, and many more like Swastika symbol, King’s face used in ancient currencies, Ashok Chakra, Number 0, letters e.g, R,S,P,U,E,I etc. even र or रु, holy signs like sacred kalash and also the sign of stability along with its negotiation with foriegn currencies with the use of horizontal bar having two open arms facing upward & downward to keep up with market fluctuation and finally as a whole visual representation of an emperor with one sword facing upward in right hand to fight enemies and the other one in left hand facing downward to hole peace in his country but yet it is so simple!
I think it’s not at all complicated as it consists of 1 P, 1 O and 1 horizontal S. It is a three Stroke symbol, whereas $, £ are two stroke symbols and €, ¥ are of three strokes.
Even, this symbol can be written in a single stroke by starting from the downside of P , followed by the O in anti-clockwise direction and finally the horizontal S. Moreover, the pattern is so unique that ambiguity will never arise with other letters/ currencies/numbers even if written carelessly or in too hurry.
