On this day, the largest democracy of the world celebrates the gift of freedom given to her by the brave patriots. This day commemorates India's legal freedom from the British imperialist rule.

The celebrations begin in the morning when the National Flag is unfurled at the Red Fort. The Tri - color waving in the wind symbolises the assertion of the country's freedom; her triumphant call of sovereignty. The National flag is hoisted in the schools through out the country. It is put up on the rooftops of most houses and can even be found on the vehicles of many people. It is a national holiday so the people attend the schools and their offices only for the flag hoisting ceremony.
