Independence Day 2023 is set to be celebrated on Tuesday, 15 August. We are gearing up to celebrate the 77th Independence Day this year. It is time to pay tribute to the freedom fighters who laid down their lives to free our nation. The Britishers ruled us for about 200 years and India finally gained its independence on 15 August 1947. We should all get together and grandly celebrate this auspicious day with great enthusiasm and national fervour.

Independence Day is celebrated across the country and people organise events to make the day memorable. From hoisting the Indian National Flag to singing the anthem, everything is done with excitement in the events organised by schools, colleges, and societies. You should also take part in the events and learn more about our struggle for independence. Know more about the martyrs.


The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, announced the Har Ghar Tiranga movement so that more people are motivated to hoist the national flag. People can post pictures with the flag on the official website of Har Ghar Tiranga and be a part of the Independence Day celebration.

The Tiranga, which is the Indian National Flag, carries a rich history and it played an important role in the fight for independence. It is a strong symbol of our independence and we must pay honour to our flag on this crucial day.
