National Flag,The Pride Of India,It is a symbol of our Solidarity and. The National Flag represents the,Struggle and Victory that we are. ever so proud of,So let us gather together and,express that solidarity. Let us fly our National Flag today,and everyday, The flag was not at all about people as it was for power In fact the flag has never been for the. common man in the past as it always belonged to the ruler But mere boundaries cannot define a. nation It is when people believe in the idea of their shared existence the values they hold dear. and the sacrifices they may be required to make to uphold those ideals it is then that a flag. becomes an emotional anchor, According to the Flag Code of India the flag could be flown only on ceremonial occasions not on.
all days If democracy is of the people by the people and for the people then why didn t the flag. belong to the people of India who had struggled and made supreme sacrifices for. independence, For the first time in our 5 000 year old history the flag now finally belongs to the people of this. On 23rd January 2004 the Honorable Supreme Court of India ruled that flying of the National Flag. is the Fundamental Right of an Indian citizen within Article 19 1 a of the Constitution of India that. grants freedom of speech and expression, It is important to display our National Flag not only at important public buildings but also at our. homes to showcase our national pride and unity As an Indian each one of us is proud of our flag. The true spirit of our flag should reflect in living by its ideals of doing our duty honestly and. fulfilling our responsibility with a sense of dedication to the country In my drive to promote the. Tiranga I interact with different kinds of people, Six decades after independence the colours of our Tiranga have acquired a larger aura. Saffron stands for sacrifice,White stands for purity and. Green stands for growth, The Ashok Chakra is the wheel that denotes movement.
We are now free to respectfully fly the National Flag at our homes workplaces and other public. areas on all 365 days of the year between sunrise and sunset This was made possible by. Shri Naveen Jindal Chairman Jindal Steel and Power Ltd Who fought a long legal battle on. behalf of the common man of our country for the pride to fly the tricolor. When we hoist our National Flag we rise above religious regional and political affiliations and. show our love for the nation It is a constant reminder of the supreme sacrifices made by the sons. of our soil for the glory of Mother India The Tiranga has no religion of its own it relates to no. particular state or community but belongs to all It is secular in the true sense. In a sincere endeavour to uphold the honour of our National Flag and inspire the citizens.

Word From The Founder Of DK Flag Foundation,The National Flag is witnessed only on the. occasions of Independence Day and Republic,Day It has always been out of reach for the. common man But Mumbai based,businessman Mr Rakesh Bakshi turned his.
patriotic dream into reality by bringing the,National Flag to the masses Pioneering a one. of a kind initiative in India through DK Flag,Foundation Mr Bakshi has plans to hoist the. flag at different places in and around Mumbai,He dreams of seeing myriad flags dotting the. horizon of Mumbai and its surrounding areas, He wants the National Flag to be accessible to Mr Rakesh Bakshi The Flagman Of India. the common man and they should be able to, touch it feel it and experience the pride The height of the flag masts and the size of the flags will.
keep increasing with each installation so that the flags are visible from far off locations. The idea of installing flags came to Bakshi during one of his business trips to Istanbul Turkey. three years ago He was awestruck with flags unfurling everywhere in the city Back in India the. tricolour instantly evoked a sense of patriotism and he decided to replicate the same in his city. His father was in the armed forces and wherever he lived he would see the National Flag swaying. high The National Flag is evidently a matter of great pride for him Through this initiative Mr. Bakshi simply wants to evoke a sense of National Pride every time you see the tricolour unfurling. Our Mission Vision, At the DK Flag Foundation we have taken up the cause of celebrating the freedom of our. existence every day Saluting millions of martyrs who have given us this exim gift of freedom. We are here to create awareness of the National Flag and clear misconceptions that the common. citizens civilians are not permitted to own or display flag in their homes offices and premises. For today s generation nationalism and patriotism is a mere slogan We are slowly forgetting the. importance of the nation in our lives we tend to take patriotism and sacrifice as the duty of. Armed Forces only, DK Flag Foundation is an initiative to trigger our senses of Nationalism. To take the message of our Tiranga to every Indian we intend to make use of all available and. appropriate mediums such as art and culture printing and photography exhibitions cultural. programs and festivals performing arts etc to schools and colleges in collaboration with civil. society professionals corporate houses educationists and other like minded individuals. institutions with a special focus on children the youth of India. Jai Hind 01,History Of The Flag, The architect of the first flag of the Indian National Congress was Pingali Venkayya of Andhra. Pradesh In 1906 he attended the National Congress meeting at Calcutta but felt humiliated to. stand under the Union Jack hoisted there It is here that he was inspired to design a national flag. In April 1921 Gandhiji asked him to design a flag with a charkha in the centre The idea to include. the charkha was to represent the common man in the flag however it came from Raizada Hans. Raj of Jalandhar Punjab and Gandhiji accepted it gladly This is how the first flag of the Indian. National Congress INC came into being It has the white band on the top green in the centre. and a red band at the bottom with charkha in the centre The white colour stood for minorities. green represented the Muslims and red the Hindus This communal connotation later gave rise. to discontentment among certain section of the people. In April 1931 the Congress leadership met to appoint a Flag Committee in order to dispel the. religious sentiments attached to the flag A different interpretation was given to the colours of the. new flag The saffron colour stood for courage and sacrifice white for peace and prosperity and. green for faith and fertility Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru suggested that white should be in the middle. The design was unanimously accepted by all and the first official flag of the Indian National. Congress came into being The flag had saffron on the top white in the middle with the charkha. on it and green at the bottom In other words the 1921 flag of Pingali Venkayya was accepted with. minor modifications, The National Flag was born on 22 July 1947 in the Constituent Assembly when the Adhoc. Committee adopted the Tiranga as the National Flag of independent India as designed by Mrs. Badruddin Tyabji wife of B H F Tyabji an ICS officer of the 1934 batch and a Deputy Secretary in. the Constituent Assembly Consequent upon the historic announcement of the declaration of. independence on 15th August 1947 an Adhoc,Flag Committee was constituted under the.
Chairman of the Constituent Assembly Dr Rajendra, Prasad and it finally approved the sample prepared. by Mrs Badruddin Tyabji,On 14th August 1947 at 10 45pm the Central Hall. of the Council House known as the Parliament,House moved and approved the resolution amidst. thunderous cheers acclamation and blowing of,conch shells Subsequently on 15th August 1947. the first public flag salutation ceremony was held at. the War Memorial in Princess Park near India Gate,Jai Hind 02.
Young Crusader Liberates The National Flag, India adopted its National flag on 22 July 1947 The codes. related to the flag were however drawn between 1948 50. wherein there were restrictions on its free display by the. common citizens According to the Flag Code of India 1951. the National Flag would fly only atop government buildings and. official residences of certain government dignitaries The. countrymen could fly the Tricolour only on Independence Day. Republic Day Gandhi Jayanti and some other days in a year. Surprisingly no one ever raised a voice against this. discrimination against the common man, Someone had to take up the issue on behalf of the common. man of the country to fly the National Flag on all days with due. respect In a country where millions had sacrificed their lives for. the flag during the freedom struggle no one protested against. this discrimination until 1993 when a 23 year old young. spirited and dynamic industrialist stood tall for the basic right of Naveen Jindal Chairman. Indians to freely fly the National Flag He questioned the Jindal Steel and Power Ltd. restrictions imposed on the free display of National Flag. Naveen Jindal son of Shri O P Jindal and a scion of the Jindal Group of Industries returned home. in 1992 after securing a Master s degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas. Dallas in the United States On 26 January 1993 Naveen hoisted the National Flag in the. premises of his Raigarh factory to celebrate the Republic Day After the Republic Day celebrations. the factory management removed the flag at sunset as was the practice When the next day. Naveen did not see the flag hoisted on the pole he asked the concerned officer the reason for not. flying it He was told that government rules did not allow the flag to fly on private buildings and. factories other than on certain days of the year, Mr Jindal however instructed his office management to hoist the flag daily at the factory at. sunrise and lower it at sunset with due respect The flag flew daily in the factory premises till. September 1994 when the then Commissioner of Bilaspur Mr S P Dubey objected to it He. ordered the superintendent of police to have it removed from the pole. It is interesting to know that a similar incident had occurred at Bhagalpur in Bihar in February. 1923 At an industrial exhibition held there one of the stalls had hoisted the Tricolour The then. Divisional Commissioner Mr B C Sen objected to it The non cooperators however took a firm. stand and refused to pull it down To avoid an untoward situation it was agreed to fly the Union. Jack and the Tricolour side by side This stand did not find favour with the Government of Bihar. and Mr Sen was severely reprimanded by the Governor of Bihar for coming to terms with the. Congressmen Point to note that even after independence divisional commissioners were. behaving in the same way in 1994 as they did during pre independence days in 1923. When Naveen learnt about the removal of the flag by the government authorities he was shocked. and greatly upset He decided to fight for his right to fly the National Flag and prepared himself for. a legal battle He approached Mr Shanti Bhushan an eminent lawyer with a penchant for public. interest issues,Jai Hind 03, Naveen was told that there were two specific laws on the subject The first was the Prevention of. Insults to National Honour Act 1971 which states that the National Flag should not be burnt. mutilated defaced defiled disfigured destroyed or trampled upon within public view. Offenders could be jailed up to three years or fined However the law did not prevent anyone from. flying the flag in a respectful manner The second law related to the use of National Flag in the. Emblems and Names Prevention of Improper Use Act 1950 This Act states that The National. flag or The National Emblem could not be used for commercial purposes nor could it be used as. packaging Armed with this knowledge Naveen filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court on 2. February 1995 requesting that all Indians and institutions be allowed to fly the flag in a respectful. manner since the executive instructions contained in the Flag Code had no legal sanctity. On 22 September 1995 a division bench comprising Justice D P Wadhwa and Justice Dr M K. Sharma of the Hon ble Delhi High Court allowed Naveen to fly the National Flag on all days of the. year with dignity and respect In a landmark judgement the High Court held that the government. could not deprive citizens of their fundamental rights through an executive order The court also. held that the right to fly the National Flag was part of the Fundamental Right of Freedom of Speech. and Expression and that the right could only be restricted by the Parliament as per Article 19 2 of. Saffron stands for sacrifice White stands for purity and Green stands for growth The Ashok Chakra is the wheel that denotes movement We are now free to respectfully fly the National Flag at our homes workplaces and other public areas on all 365 days of the year between sunrise and sunset This was made possible by Shri Naveen Jindal Chairman Jindal Steel and Power Ltd Who fought a
