“The initiative dedicated to fostering a deeper personal connection with the Tirangas has asked Indians around the world to display the flag in their homes or workplaces as a sign of commitment to the cause of nation-building during Amrit Kaal (25 by India in 2047), “It said.

The ministry said the program designed in a hybrid format envisions a physical and emotional connection to the flag itself in the personal context and also envisions a collective celebration and amplification of patriotic fervor through the uploading of a selfie to the special website ( created for this initiative.

Earlier this morning in his Independence Day speech, the Prime Minister had remarked that in recent days we have seen and experienced a new force which was the rebirth of the collective consciousness and the rebirth of this collective consciousness is the country’s greatest treasure and is like the nectar that has emerged over the years of struggle for freedom.

Reflecting on this milestone, Culture Minister G Kishan Reddy said, “Tiranga’s 5 crore selfies reflect the collective commitment of duty-bound Indians to keep the Nation first and always first.

“Thank you, India. This is indeed a special time of outpouring of collective expressions of love and connection for the motherland. Wishing everyone a very Happy Independence Day!” he added.

He also said that as a buzz-building activity, the website also allowed people to digitally pin a flag to a location based on their IP address. This feature saw a huge draw with all India and global participation crossing 5 crore plus pins.

5 crore selfies with flag is a testament to five crore pledges to keep India on top and make India the supreme nation.

‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is a 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. The “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign ended on August 15.

The program plans to inspire Indians around the world to hoist the

The idea behind the initiative was to invoke the feeling of patriotism in people’s hearts and spread awareness of the tricolor flag.

Previously, Indian citizens were not allowed to hoist the national flag except on certain occasions.

That changed after a decade of legal battle led by industrialist Naveen Jindal, culminating in the historic Supreme Court ruling of January 23, 2004, which declared that the right to fly the national flag freely with respect and dignity is a fundamental right of an Indian citizen within the meaning of Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution of India.

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.
