We owe a lot to Mr Naveen Jindal who has fought tooth and nail to help each one of us be able to hoist the national flag. It is by virtue of his efforts that on 26th January 2002, the Indian flag code was modified and after several years of independence, the citizens of India were finally allowed to hoist the Indian flag over their homes, offices and factories on any day and not just National days as was the case earlier.
Now Indians can proudly display the national flag any where and any time, as long as the provisions of the Flag Code are strictly followed to avoid any disrespect to the tricolour. For the sake of convenience, Flag Code of India, 2002, has been divided into three parts.
- Part I of the Code contains general description of the National Flag.
- Part II of the Code is devoted to the display of the National Flag by members of public, private organizations, educational institutions, etc.
- Part III of the Code relates to display of the National Flag by Central and State governments and their organisations and agencies.
However one must remember that with each liberty comes the responsibility and we should make sure that we do not show any disrespect to our national flag as our National Flag has undergone transformation to reach this present stage and we all are proud of it.gone
