Excited at the idea of ​​bringing Tiranga home? 1st Know the rules for displaying the national flag

The government’s “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign to mark 75 years of independence is being celebrated vigorously as people decorate their homes with the national flag.

The campaign started on August 13 and will run until August 15. It is part of the “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” program and the government has urged people to hoist or display the tricolor at home during this time.
