The brand name "Ashoka Maurya" is taken from the Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent. Born in 304 BC, Ashoka Maurya was one of India's greatest Emperors and reigned over most of present day ...India.

 

Ashoka Maurya was ranked No.53 on Michael H. Harts list of the most influential figures ever lived in history. When India gained independence from the British Empire it adopted Ashoka's emblem for its own, placing the Dharmachakra (The Wheel of Righteous Duty) that crowned his many columns on the newly independent state, the Indian flag as we know it today.
