Everyone can take part in Har Ghar Tiranga by uploading their selfie with the Tiranga. As part of this initiative, the Department of Posts is serving as the designated entity responsible for selling and distributing high-quality National Flags to the public. The flags could be purchased from https://www.epostoffice.gov.in till 12th August at 11:59 PM. 

The Postal Department has placed a requisition for 2.5 crore flags this year and 55 lakh flags have already been sent out through post offices. The Ministry of Textiles has already sent out 1.3cr flags to states. Crores of flags are also being produced by Self-Helf Groups. 

The government of India is celebrating Har Ghar Tiranga from 13th to 15th August 2023 under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. This campaign aims to bolster the sense of patriotism within citizens and commemorate the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav with the essence of collaborative participation and increased Jan Bhagidari. 

This year the Tiranga rallies are also under full swing in various parts of the country and are witnessing immense public participation.

PM Narendra Modi urged people to hoist tricolour at home to mark Independence Day.  In the latest episode of Mann Ki Baat,  PM called for continuing ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ tradition which saw tremendous success, and Jan Bhagidari last year. PM Modi also requested citizens to change their social media display pictures with the tricolour.

In 2022 during the campaign, many new achievements were made. One example is when 5,885 people came together at the Cricket Stadium in Sector 16, Chandigarh, and set a Guinness World Record for creating the largest human image of a waving national flag. 

As part of the ongoing ‘Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav’ celebrations, the District Administration in Srinagar achieved a national record by displaying an 1850-meter-long National Flag at Bakshi Stadium to celebrate 75 years of India’s Independence.
