“Know the Rules before you Display the National Flag”
The National Flag represents the hopes and aspirations of the people of our country. There is universal affection and respect for the National Flag. In terms of “Flag Code of India 2002”, there is no restriction on the display of the National Flag by the members of general public, private organizations and educational institutions etc. However, while doing so, certain guiding principles are required to be observed by all concerned as stipulated in “Flag Code of India 2002” published by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India and subsequent modifications, as and when, promulgated by the Union Government.
Also, the right hand picture of the map of India in national colours with the Asoka Chakra at the centre and Mr. Rajib Gandhi (then president of the Congress) adorning the Chakra was deplored, as no leader, however great, can be placed on the national flag.
