Flag Code of 2002
The Flag Code of India of 2002, which came into effect on January 26, 2002, governs the display of the Tricolour. It is divided into 3 parts, with the first part talking about general description of the flag, the second focusing on the display of the flag by private and public organisations and the third devoted to the flagÂ’s display by the government and its agencies.
The code allows for an unrestricted display of the Tricolour as long as the due honour and dignity is ushered. It integrates all the pre-existing rules regulating correct display of the flag under the The Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950 and The Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971.
