Lord Hanuman’s flag is also known as the ‘Victory flag’. Here is the mysterious secret behind Lord Hanuman Vijay Pataka:

During Mahabharat, when Lord Krishna directed Arjuna to fight against the Kauravas, he had to use all of his divine weapons and Brahamastra. After the fight when Lord Krishna and Arjuna got off the chariot, the chariot was on fire by itself.
