Question- What is the difference between hoisting the flag on Independence Day and Republic Day?
1. Independence Day is celebrated every year on 15th August. On this day the flag is pulled from below with the help of a rope and taken up. After that it is opened and hoisted. This process is called flag hoisting. This was done during the historic moment of August 15, 1947 and every year the Prime Minister hoists the flag from the ramparts of the Red Fort. Whereas on the occasion of Republic Day i.e. 26 January, the flag remains tied at the top and it is unfurled and hoisted. This is called flag unfurling.
2. The Prime Minister hoists the flag on Independence Day, while the President hoists the flag on Republic Day. This is because when the country became independent on August 15, 1947, the Constitution of India did not come into force and the President did not have a constitutional office and no President had assumed office. On the eve of Independence Day i.e. a day before on the evening of 14th August, the President delivers his message to the nation. At the same time, Republic Day is celebrated on 26 January 1950 to commemorate the coming into force of the Constitution of the country. On this day the constitutional head i.e. the President hoists the flag.
3. On Independence Day i.e. 15th August, the flag is hoisted from the ramparts of the Red Fort. On this day people from all over the country and abroad reach to listen to the Prime Minister. At the same time, the flag is hoisted on the Rajpath on Republic Day. Here the floats are taken out. India’s bravery is displayed.
