Additionally, PM Modi has requested that people update their social media profile photographs to the tricolour. The campaign to update social media profiles will start today.
PM Modi advised people to change their profile pictures to the Indian national flag and fly flags from August 2 to August 15 to honour independence warrior Pingali Venkayya, whose birthday is on August 2. The Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, which is being held this year to commemorate India’s 75th anniversary of independence, includes the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE HAR GHAR TIRANGA CAMPAIGN
All social media users who have accounts can take part by switching their profile images to tricolour. Additionally, as part of the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, people are required to fly the Indian flag in accordance with the Flag Code of India’s regulations. The Flag Code is a collection of guidelines created by the government that apply to the creation, display, and eventual disposal of the national flag. It also discusses the flag’s dimensions, base material, and orientation.
For instance, the Flag Code of 2002 states that the National flag must not be exhibited inverted or unfurled from a single masthead, touch the ground, or be secured in a way that could harm it. Other prohibitions include the usage of the national flag as draperies or printed on handkerchiefs or other clothing.
To recognise the campaign as a success, some states have taken action. The state government of Maharashtra has directed the state cooperation agencies to make sure that every housing complex raises the flag on Independence Day. All buildings used by the government and semi-government are subject to the same rules. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence, 20 crore houses, according to the city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh, would raise the national flag.
Assam’s state government has promised to produce 80 lakh tricolour flags, which would be handed to homes. A textile factory in Bongaigaon has been given the task of producing by the government, and it is working around the clock to complete the task.
