India@75 | Indian Coast Guard unfurls the national flag underwater

As part of 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign, Indian Coast Guard performed an underwater flag demo at sea.

As part of Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, Indian Coast Guard performed an underwater flag demo at sea. Idea behind the initiative is to invoke feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people & to promote awareness about the Indian National Flag.

The "Har Ghar Tiranga" campaign, launched as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of the country's independence, seeks to encourage Indians to exhibit the tricolour with almost no restrictions.

All kinds of materials can be used for making the flags -- polyester, cotton, wool, silk and Khadi bunting material.

Previously, machine-made and polyester flags were not allowed to be used. There is also no restriction on the size of the flag, neither on the timing of its display.

Earlier, the national flag was allowed to be flown from sunrise to sunset, irrespective of the prevailing weather conditions.

A member of the public, a private organisation or an educational institution may hoist or display the national flag on all days and occasions now, a source said.

The culture ministry said the states have been mobilised to use self-help groups (SHGs) for the production of the flags. Local tailoring units and MSMEs have also been roped in.

The Ministry of Textiles has identified the flag producers who supply flags in large quantities.

All 1.6 lakh post offices in the country shall also have flags for sale at the last mile, the source added.

The "Har Ghar Tiranga" campaign has been launched to motivate citizens to hoist the tricolour in their homes for three days -- from August 13 to August 15.

According to an official statement, over 20 crore national flags would be hoisted atop houses for the three days
