Setting new records

To mark the celebrations under the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign as part of the ongoing 'Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav', the district administration in Srinagar hit a national record by displaying a 1,850-metre-long national flag at Bakshi Stadium to celebrate 75 years of Independence.

One of the Har Ghar Tiranga initiatives in Chandigarh bagged the Guinness World Record for the world's largest human formation resembling a waving national flag which included the participation of 5,885 people.

The Central government launched the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' initiative to mark 75 years of Independence. "The programme conceived in a hybrid format envisaged a physical and emotional connect with the flag itself in the personal context and also envisaged a collective celebration and amplification of patriotic fervour through the act of uploading a selfie on the special website created for this initiative," read the statement from the ministry of culture.

The Centre took various steps to ensure the supply of flags across India. Post-offices in the country started selling flags from 1 August 2022. In addition, state governments also tied up with various stakeholders for the supply and sale of flags. The Indian national flag was also registered on the GeM portal. The government of India tied up with various e-commerce websites and self-help groups to streamline the process to supply flags.
