Here are some suggestions for how to display the national flag properly at home.
- The Tricolor should be prominently displayed and should hold the position of honour.
- Never fly or show a flag that is torn or untidy. The National Flag shall be in excellent shape at all times.
- The saffron band of the Tricolour should never be at the bottom, and the Tricolour should never be exhibited reversed.
- No one or anything should be saluted by lowering the national flag.
- The National Flag shall never be flown higher, above, or next to any other flag or bunting.
- On or above the flag mast, nothing—not even flowers, garlands, or symbols—should be positioned.
- It is forbidden to use the national flag as a festoon, rosette, bunting, or in any other decorative context.
- Under no circumstances or conditions can the National Flag touch the ground, the floor, or a trail in the water.
- The flag shouldn’t have any text.
How should one dispose of the national flag?
The entire, tattered national flag must be disposed of in a private setting. Burning or any other method that respects its dignity can be used to accomplish this.
How should the flag be folded?
The ministry provided four instructions for neatly folding the national flag via a tweet.
Step 1: The Indian flag must be positioned horizontally in the first step.
Step 2: Fold the green and saffron bands under the white band.
Step 3: The white band must now be folded so that only the Ashoka Chakra and a portion of the saffron and green bands are visible.
Step 4: To store the folded Indian national flag in a secure location, carry it in your arms or palms.
