Keeping with his tradition of donning different pattern turbans on Independence Day,Prime Minister Narendra Modi chose a saffron headgear with red patterns and a long tail for the 75th I-Day celebrations at the historic Red Fort on Sunday.

PM Modi wearing a traditional kurta and a churidar was complemented by a blue jacket and a stole, he continued his tradition of donning flamboyant and colorful turbans at I-Day and Republic Day events.

Last year, during the 74th Independence Day celebration, the PM Modi sported a saffron and cream headgear with a long tail.

He had paired the 'safa' with a half-sleeve kurta and a fitted churidar. He also wore a white scarf with a saffron border that he used to cover his mouth and nose in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, Modi sported a multi-coloured turban as he gave his sixth Independence Day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort after returning to power for a second term with a thumping majority.

For his maiden Independence Day in 2014, he had opted for a bright red Jodhpuri bandhej turban.

In 2015, he chose a yellow turban covered with multi-coloured criss-cross lines, and a tie and dye turban in hues of pink and yellow in 2016.

The prime minister's turban for 2017 was a mix of bright red and yellow with criss-crossed golden lines all over. He donned a saffron turban for his appearance at the Red Fort in 2018.

From a bright red bandhani turban from Kutch to a mustard Rajasthani 'safa', Modi's eye-catching turbans have been a highlight of his Republic Day appearances too. (With PTI inputs)
