Do’s and Don’ts

  • We must respect the flag above all.
  • The flag should be of the given standard size.
  • Whenever the National flag is flown, it should occupy the position of honour and be distinctly placed.
  • Where the practice is to fly the National flag on any public building, it shall be flown on that building on all days, including Sundays and holidays. It shall be flown from sunrise to sunset irrespective of weather conditions. The flag may be flown on such a building at night also, but this should be only on very special occasions.
  • The National flag shall always be hoisted briskly and lowered slowly and ceremoniously. When the hoisting and the lowering of the flag is accompanied by appropriate bugle calls, the hoisting and lowering should be simultaneous with the bugle calls.
  • When a National flag is displayed from a staff projecting horizontally or at an angle from a windowsill, balcony or front of a building, the saffron band shall be at the farther end of the staff.
  • When the National flag is displayed flat and horizontal on a wall, the saffron band shall be uppermost and when displayed vertically, the saffron band shall be to the right with reference to the flag, i.e. it may be to the right of a person facing it.
  • When displayed over the middle of a street, running east-west or north-south, the National flag shall be suspended vertically with the saffron to the north, or to the east as the case may be.
  • When the National flag is displayed on a speaker’s platform, it shall be flown on a staff on the speaker’s right as he faces the audience or flat against the wall above and behind the speaker.
  • When used on occasions like the unveiling of a statue, the National flag shall be displayed distinctly and separately.
  • When a National flag is displayed alone on a motorcar, it shall be flown from a staff that should be affixed firmly to the car in the middle front of the bonnet.
  • When a National flag is carried in a procession or a parade, it shall be either on the marching right, that is the flag’s own right, or if there is a line of other flags, in front of the centre of the line.
