Volunteers are urging residents to prefer locally made Indian flags rather than those made in China due to the huge demand for the national tricolour before Independence Day and the launch of the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign.

In order to commemorate Independence Day and the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign, citizens and merchants are being given pamphlets by volunteers of the Bharat Flag Foundation requesting them to only purchase “Made in India” flags, which are sold in the market for Rs 30 each.

There will be a tremendous demand for the Indian tri-color because of the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign that will take place before Independence Day, and it’s possible that a lot of flags produced in China would be put into the market. According to Rahul Bhalerao, Executive President of the Bharat Flag Foundation, if we indirectly support the Chinese economy by purchasing these flags, it would help that country’s economy.

As part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of the nation’s independence, the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign was introduced, which aims to encourage people to display the tricolour with little to no limitation. This campaign tries to get people to fly the tricolour from August 13 to August 15 in their residences for three days.

According to Bhalerao, the group is pleading with the public to only purchase flags made in India in order to boost the country’s economy.

We are urging consumers and dealers to select “Made in India” flags and avoid flags made in China, the man added.

The owner of Pune’s renowned Murudkar Zendewale, Girish Murudkar, claims that the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign has increased demand for the national flag by at least 10 times. The store offers Puneri phetas (headgear), flags, and badges.

In advance of Independence Day and Republic Day, our stores typically sell 20,000 small, medium, and large-size flags. The Center’s announcement of this campaign has, however, raised demand for the flag. As Independence Day draws closer, the demand for the flag will rise, according to Murudkar, the director of the Bharat Flag Foundation, which has sold between 50,000 and 60,000 flags thus far.

He continued by saying that a 20 x 30 inch cotton/polyester flag is being produced and would be sold for Rs 30 each.

“The government has changed the Flag Code and authorised the machine-made polyester flags along with the hand-spun (khadi) ones,” he added. “This was done in anticipation of the spike in demand for flags due to the campaign.”

The Flag Code of India was recently revised by the Ministry of Home Affairs to permit polyester or machine-made flags. According to the amendment, khadi bunting composed of cotton, polyester, wool, or silk must be hand-spun and hand-woven or machine-manufactured to serve as the national flag of India.
