The Khanda constitutes three symbols in one. However, the name is derived from the central symbol, Khanda, a special type of double-edged sword which confirms the Sikhs' belief in One God.
The double-edged sword is the creative power of God which controls the destiny of the whole creation. It is sovereign power over life and death.
The right edge of the double-edged sword symbolizes freedom and authority governed by moral and spiritual values.
The left edge of the double-edged sword symbolizes divine justice which chastises and punishes the wicked oppressors.
On the left side is the sword of spiritual sovereignty, Piri; on the right side is the sword of political sovereignty, Miri.
