Armed Forces Flag Day honours the soldiers, airmen and sailors of India. The Armed Forces Flag Day or the Flag Day of India is a day dedicated towards collection of funds from people of India for the welfare of the Indian Armed Forces personnel.
It has been observed annually in India on December 7 since 1949. Over the years, it has become a tradition to commemorate this day as an honour to the soldiers, airmen and sailors of India.
India does not have a Flag Day dedicated to the National Flag. Prior to 2004, Indians were allowed to display the National Flag only on select days like the Independence day and Republic day.
Industrialist Naveen Jindal fought a decade long battle and won the Fundamental Right to fly the National Flag. Many Indians have been arguing to observe 23 January as the Flag Day as the landmark Supreme Court judgement allowing all Indians to display the National Flag on all days of the year was deivered on 23 January 2004
