    The Ministry of Culture has also shared a guide on how to correctly fold the national flag as the Tricolour, a symbol of national pride, should be kept in a proper manner

    As part of the 75th Independence Day celebrations, the government has launched the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign, urging citizens to display or hoist the national flag at their homes between August 13 and 15.
    The Ministry of Culture has also shared a guide on how to correctly fold the national flag as the tricolour, a symbol of national pride, should be kept properly.
    A set of laws and conventions known as the Flag Code of India 2002 was introduced on January 26, 2002, to govern the use, display, and hoisting of tricolour in the country. The Flag Code was amended on December 30, 2021, allowing the use of polyester, apart from cotton, wool, silk, and khadi for making hand-spun, hand-woven, and machine-made flags. Before the amendment, polyester and machine-made flags were not allowed.
    Another amendment through an order on July 20, 2022, allowed the national flag to be hoisted or displayed in the open at the house of the public day and night. Before this amendment, tricolour was allowed to be flown only from sunrise to sunset.
