The “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to encourage people to bring Tiranga home and hoist it to mark the 75th anniversary of India’s independence kicked off today.
The campaign launched as part of “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav”, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence, will run until August 15.
The central government has urged people to hoist or display the tricolor in their homes from August 13 to 15 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence.
A citizen, a private organization or an educational institution can hoist or display the national flag every day and every occasion. There are no restrictions on when the flag is displayed.
The government has amended India’s flag code to allow the tricolor to be displayed in the open and on individual houses or buildings day and night.

Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an Indian government initiative to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence and the glorious history of India’s people, culture and achievements.

Praising the Center and Prime Minister Modi for the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, Naveen Jindal urged all Indians to make ‘Har Din Tiranga’ their motto.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had urged citizens across the country to use “tiranga” as their profile picture on social media accounts between August 2 and August 15.
