In order to encourage people to bring the Tricolour home and hoist it to commemorate India's 75th anniversary of independence, Prime Minister Modi launched the "Har Ghar Tiranga" campaign in July. According to the Ministry of Culture, the initiative's goals are to celebrate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav and instil a sense of nationalism in the hearts of the populace.

On July 31, 2022, PM Modi requested Indians to change their social media profile pictures from August 2 to August 15 to the Indian flag. He made the request during an appearance on the Mann Ki Baat radio programme.

The Constituent Assembly meeting on July 22, 1947, took place just days before India attained independence on August 15, 1947, and this is when the National Flag of India (in its current form) was adopted. The National Flag of India's colours were carefully picked to represent the spirit of India and have immense symbolic value. Saffron represents power and bravery, white for harmony and righteousness, and green for growth and fertility. The flag's central chakra represents movement, progress, and advancement.

The Flag Code of India and its revisions regulate the dignity of the Indian National Flag. It outlines the customs, procedures, and guidelines for displaying the national flag.
