Prime Minister Narendra Modi encouraged people to display the tricolour at their homes between August 13 and August 15, which, in his opinion, will deepen the connection with the national flag and reinforce nationalism. He suggested action to strengthen the Har Ghar Tiranga movement.
He emphasised the significance of July 22, since it marked the adoption of India’s national flag, a milestone in its history. In his tweet he said, “This year, when we are marking Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, let us strengthen the Har Ghar Tiranga Movement. Hoist the Tricolour or display it in your homes between August 13 and 15. This movement will deepen our connect with the national flag.”
He shared some chronicles showcasing details of the committee associated with our tricolour and the first national flag hoisted by Pandit Nehru.
Taking to Twitter, he said, “Today, 22nd July has special relevance in our history. It was on this day in 1947 that our National Flag was adopted. Sharing some interesting nuggets from history including details of the committee associated with our Tricolour and the first Tricolour unfurled by Pandit Nehru.”
The prime minister also remembered the enormous bravery and efforts of those who dreamt of the national flag during India’s colonial era. He said, “Today, we recall the monumental courage and efforts of all those who dreamt of a flag for free India when we were fighting colonial rule. We reiterate our commitment to fulfil their vision and build the India of their dreams. “”
One nation, one identity- Our Tiranga! In the 75th year of our independence, let’s bring our National Flag home, proudly fly it from 13th to 15th August and show the world we are one! Har Ghar Tiranga,” the culture ministry tweeted.
To mark the 75th Independence Day of India, the ministry of Culture came up with an initiative called “Har Ghar Tiranga.’
This campaign is to encourage citizens to display the national flag at their homes from August 13 to 15.
The Culture Ministry is the agency in charge of the “Har Ghar Tiranga” effort and the Ministry will ask the government of the states to utilise all available resources, such as habitation and urban development agencies, both local organisations, such as municipal organisations, and the Panchayati Raj establishments, for advancing the campaign’s objectives.
