Independence Day and much talked about ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign, the Centre on Thursday listed steps on the correct way to fold the national flag.
The central government has started ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign under the aegis of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to encourage people to bring the Tricolor home and to hoist it to mark the 75th year of India’s independence between August 13 and 15.
As the campaign officially begins, the Ministry of Culture published a step-by-step guide on how to fold and store the national flag. Take a look at this:
- Place the flag horizontally.
- Fold the saffron and green bands under the middle white band.
- Fold the white band in such a way that only the Ashok Chakra is seen with parts of saffron and green bands.
- After the process is complete, carry the folded flag on palms or arms to store it.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi put the national flag as the display picture (DP) of his social media accounts and urged people to do the same as part of a collective movement to celebrate the Tricolour.
“Our tiranga is the pride of our country, the tiranga is in the heart of every Indian”.
