Armed Forces Flag Day: Significance, Tributes And How You Can Contribute


The Indian Armed Forces Flag Day is observed every year on December 7 since 1949 to honour the soldiers, airmen and sailors of India who fought on the borders to safeguard the country’s honour.

It is a day dedicated to collection of funds from people for the welfare of the Armed Forces personnel. The three branched of the Armed Forces – the Indian Army, the Indian Air Force and the Indian Navy – organise a variety of programmes to showcase their efforts towards national security.

The fund collected on the Flag Day is also used for the welfare of serving personnel and ex-servicemen and also to rehabilitate battle causalities. Small flags are also distributed on this day in return for donations. Read More
