AngularJS - Pass some flag from html to controller

I am new to Angular JS. Am stuck, and could not find a solution.

Problem - I have a html code as given below :

<div ng-controller="myController" ng-model={{tt="a"}}>
<div ng-controller="myController" ng-model={{tt="b"}}>
<div ng-controller="myController" ng-model={{tt="c"}}>

And a controller code is :

myApp.controller('myController', function($scope) {
    if($scope.tt == "a") //do something
    else if($scope.tt == "b) //do something else

NOTE - The html ng-model, I just wrote to let you know what i actually want.

Question - I want to send something to controller from my html, so that i can check the value and do conditionally.

This is probably not the best practice but if you want to bring data in from the html to angular you can stash the data as a property of window inside of a <script> tag.

var app = angular.module('myApp',[]);
app.controller('mainCtrl', function($scope){
  $scope.tt = window.data;
<div ng-app='myApp'>
  <div ng-controller='mainCtrl'>

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.2.22/angular.min.js"></script>
