Har Ghar Tiranga

The Tri-colour flag is a symbol of pride for every Indian. It represents national integrity and signifies the hopes and aspirations of the Indian people. Our Tricolour flag represents national integrity and the endeavors and aspirations of every Indian, holding amplified significance in relation to the country’s freedom and independence.

As the connection of Indian citizens with the national flag has always been on the formal and institutional side, the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ initiative was launched to transform this relationship into an intimate bond. Citizens were encouraged to hoist the Indian National Flag at their homes between 13th-15th August, raise awareness about its significance and share the collective pride of presenting the emotions and endearment for our motherland.

Citizens were also encouraged to upload a photo with the national flag on the main website and social networks. Personalities such as Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth, Sachin Tendulkar, Sonu Sood, and Manushi Chillar participated in this movement. The initiative was promoted with a digital campaign featuring prominent personalities from various fields.
