PUNE, MAY 1, 2023

The Flag Foundation of India (FFOI) continues its mission to promote the display of the Indian National Flag with pride and honour, and to raise awareness about its significance.

On the Platinum Jubilee Celebration of the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC), Pune, the FFOI dedicated another Monumental Flag, which was dedicated to the nation by FFOI President and JSP Chairman Naveen Jindal.

Established on May 1, 1948, AFMC is a renowned medical institution that provides world-class education and training to medical and nursing students. The institution is known for producing the best doctors and nursing staff, not only in peacetime but also during times of war.

The Monumental Flag dedication ceremony was attended by distinguished guests, including Lt Gen. Daljeet Singh, DG-AFMS; Lt. Gen. (retired) DP Vats, Rajya Sabha MP; and Lt. Gen. Narendra Kotwal, Commandant of AFMC, Pune; along with other senior distinguished officers of the Indian Army.

Unfurling the 108 feet Monumental Flag, Jindal expressed his gratitude for being part of the platinum jubilee celebration and acknowledged the instrumental role that AFMC has been playing in serving the nation.

 “The Indian National Flag symbolizes unity and equality among all citizens of India. The FFOI is committed to promoting the significance of the tricolour and instilling respect for it among the people of the country,” said Jindal.

“The FFOI is running the Pledge for Tiranga Campaign, I urge you all to visit the website of FFOI and take the pledge and spread the word about the pledge to your close ones,” he added.

 The Pledge says: ‘’I take a pledge that I will dedicate myself to the nation and work for the good of my country. ”.

 Jindal further said, “When we stand below the flag, we must recognize our responsibilities as citizens to make this nation great. Tiranga also reminds us that nothing is more paramount than the country and the flag

Speaking on the occasion, Rajya Sabha MP and former AFMC Director, Lt Gen. (Retd) Dr DP Vats said, “I appreciate the outstanding work being carried out by FFOI under the guidance of Mr Naveen Jindal to install Monumental Flags across the country. I would like to see the chapters about the journey of Tiranga in school textbooks so that the next generations must know the significance of the Indian National Flag”.

Notably, the Flag Foundation of India was set up as a registered society under the Societies Registration Act of 1980, a non-profit body after Naveen Jindal won a decade-long court battle that enabled all Indians to display our National Flag with honour and pride at their homes, offices and factories on all days of the year.

On 23rd January 2004, after a decade-long legal battle fought by noted industrialist and former MP Naveen Jindal, the Supreme Court of India ruled that the display of the national flag by every citizen on all days of the year, a fundamental right. Thereafter, he founded the Flag Foundation of India, a non-governmental institution.
