Besides, the ministry also launched a dedicated website for the campaign.

The website enabled citizens of India to virtually display the national flag at their homes and share their patriotic selfies alongside the Tiranga. 

Commemorating the 75th anniversary of India's independence, known as ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, PM Modi had introduced the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ initiative last year on the significant date of July 22. 

The chosen day holds deep historical significance as it aligns with the adoption of the national flag.
