Kudumbashree is to manufacture 50 lakh National Flags as part of the 75th Anniversary Celebrations of Indian Independence. In connection with the 75th Independence Day celebrations, the national flag will be hoisted at all homes, educational institutions and governmental semi-governmental institutions in the state from 13-15 August 2022. Kudumbashree is making and distributing fifty lakh national flags required for this purpose. As per this, around 4000 Kudumbashree members from about 700 sewing units under Kudumbashree have started manufacturing the national flags. The arrangements for manufacturing 28 lakh flags have been completed until now.
As per the National Flag Code, the flag is made in the legal aspect ratio of 3:2. The National Flags are made in seven different sizes. The price of the flag ranges from Rs 20 to Rs 120. The number of flags required for the schools will be communicated by the school authorities to the local bodies. The respective local bodies will communicate the number of flags required by the schools and the number of flags required for the houses where there are no school going students to the respective Kudumbashree District Mission Coordinators. As soon as the manufacturing is completed, Kudumbashree will handover the flags to the local bodies. Kudumbashree officials of all districts, office bearers of Kudumbashree three tier system and unit members will become part of this programme. Respective Kudumbashree District Mission Coordinators are responsible for coordinating the related activities in the respective districts. If required, additional units will be included in the programme. Also, the national flag will be hoisted at the houses of 45 lakh Kudumbashree members in the state. This will be ensured through the respective CDSs.
The hoisting of the flag is a part of the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' Campaign implemented by the Government of India with the aim of giving respect to the national flag in connection with the 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' Programme which is being held as a part of the 75th Anniversary of Indian Independence, and to instill an emotional connection with the national flag and to inspire national integration.
