The Indian flag was adopted in its present form during a meeting of the Constituent Assembly held on 22nd July 1947.
The Flag Code of India 2002 was recently amended by the Ministry of Home Affairs when the government began its “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign. The home minister took this decision following a proposal which was put by industrialist Naveen Jindal.
The government of India has declared that as long as the national flag is flown in the open and by a public member, it is now allowed to fly all night. The tricolor could formerly only be flown just between sunrise and sunset. The government altered the flag code earlier to permit the use of polyester and machine-made flags. Look at the image below:
‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is a campaign under the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’s aegis to encourage people to bring the Tiranga home & to hoist it to mark the 75th year of India’s independence. On another side, it also develops patriotism in the nation.
Numerous academics have investigated the relationship between patriotism and happiness and discovered that it is quite favorable. For instance, a 2011 Psychological Science research that examined 31 nations revealed that national pride strongly predicts happiness. The authors of a different study noted that people in the most challenging personal situations have a tendency to judge their level of life satisfaction in terms of societal success, which helped to explain why the relationship between “national satisfaction” and personal well-being was strongest in poorer countries. For millennia, the idea of patriotism was associated with a common ethnicity, religion, or tongue; the love of a nation without these components appeared unthinkable. Patriotic love is not blind to problems.
Collectively bringing the flag home as a country becomes symbolic of not only a collective gesture of personal connection to the national flag but also inspiring patriotism in the hearts of the people and raising awareness about the Indian National Flag.
