The new flag code

The New Flag Code

Some of the key provisions of the flag code include:

  • The national flag should be made of handspun khadi or any other suitable material
  • The flag should never be used as a decoration or for commercial purposes
  • The flag should not be intentionally allowed to touch the ground or floor or trail in water
  • The flag should not be flown half-mast except on occasions when the government has declared a period of mourning
  • No other flag or emblem should be placed higher than the national flag, nor should it be displayed in a manner that could be seen as disrespecting the national flag

It’s important to note that the flag code is not a law in itself, but a set of guidelines that promote respect and dignity towards the national flag. Violations of the flag code are not punishable by law, but it is considered a matter of national pride and honor to follow these guidelines.
