In honour of the nation’s 75th Independence Day, the Kerala government has chosen to raise the flag in every home, school, government, and semi-governmental organization in the state. At a meeting of district collectors summoned by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday, the decision was made as part of the Union government’s “Tricolor at every home” initiative. It was decided during the meeting that state-wide festivities would be planned for Independence Day. As part of the 75th Independence Day celebrations, “all residences, educational institutions, government entities, and semi-governmental entities in the state will raise the national flag… August 13–15 will see the raising of the flag.

The flags need not be lowered at night during this period as necessary changes have been made in the Flag Code,” the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said in a release.

District collectors have been told to create the national flags with the Kudumbashree units, Khadi, and handloom sectors included. Students will distribute the flags, and local self-government institutions will handle the appropriate arrangements if there are homes without school-age children, it was stated. The meeting gave the local self-government organisations the go-ahead to ensure that the flag is flown over all homes, public buildings, and libraries, and that clubs and libraries host a variety of events related to the independence struggle.

The schoolchildren will be transported to various locations in the state that are significant to the national freedom struggle, and a booklet outlining the key moments in the movement will be issued, according to the press release. The Chief Secretary and other senior government representatives attended the meeting.
