Hey guys . As you know the common man is not allowed to fly the Indian flag daily ( except on Independence day or Republic day) .

 Shouldn't a patriotic person have the right to express his/ her patriotism ???????????

I remember reading ages ago about Naveen Jindal( Jindal Indust) who fought the goverment of India for this basic right . Which i think , the decision hasn't been made yet.

here's the link on the case :http://www.rediff.com/news/2001/jun/13spec.htm

As long as you are not disrespecting the flag and are treating it properly with respect, why can't we display it and show our love for our Country like the Americans do by flying the flag on their car or house . Why should this expression be taken away ???

What are your thoughts ?

Flag Code

On 26th January 2002, the flag code was changed. After 52 years, the citizens of India are free to fly the Indian flag over their homes, offices and factories on any day. Except some basic rules to follow while flying the flags, all other restrictions have been removed. Now Indians can proudly display the national flag any where and any time.

There are some rules and regulations upon how to fly the flag, based on the 26 January 2002 legislation. These include the following:

The Do's

The National Flag may be hoisted in educational institutions (schools, colleges, sports camps, scout camps, etc.) to inspire respect for the Flag. An oath of allegiance has been included in the flag hoisting in schools.
A member of public, a private organization or an educational institution may hoist/display the National Flag on all days and occasions, ceremonial or otherwise consistent with the dignity and honour of the National Flag.

Section 2 of the new code accepts the right of all private citizens to fly the flag on their premises.

The Don'ts:
The flag cannot be used for communal gains, drapery, or clothes. As far as possible, it should be flown from sunrise to sunset, irrespective of the weather.

The flag cannot be intentionally allowed to touch the ground or the floor or trail in water. It cannot be draped over the hood, top, and sides or back of vehicles, trains, boats or aircraft.

No other flag or bunting can be placed higher than the flag. Also, no object, including flowers or garlands or emblems can be placed on or above the flag. The tricolour cannot be used as a festoon, rosette or bunting.

As of January 26th, many have already started hoisting the flags at their premises.

So far as I know, now we are permitted by law to display the Indian flag or wear it on our persons, provided it is above the waist level.

But Aparna BD is right. Earlier, we were not allowed to display our National Flag on any day except Jan 26th and Aug 15th.

hey paki princess, you can fly the flag in your house. it is not allowed to drape over your car or vehicle cos, that is normally done to give someone a state funeral where the coffin is kept in the hearse and the flag draped over it. the flag is always to be flown on a perpendicular mast. laying it bare on the floor or draping it on a car is deemed as an insult, except, like i said earlier when honouring someone with a state funeral.

besides flying a flag on the sides of the car is normally a privilage given to the ambassadors and high commissioners only and that too when they represent their country on official meetings, not otherwise. if an ambassador of india in the usa is going for a movie he is not allowed to fix the national flag on his car (outside by the bonnet is a flag mast). but if he is going to represent the govt in white house or elsewhere his car will carry the flag. this is true for most countries!
