#RespectNationalFlag trends as netizens urge Indians to stop unintentional insult of National Flag

Bharat celebrates its Independence Day on 15th August. The National Flag is a symbol of Nation’s respect and pride. There is liberal use of the flag on Independence Day and Republic day. There is a new trend of selling flags made of paper and plastic, which is incorrect. With a sense of national pride, people enthusiastically buy such flags – but the very next day, we find these flags being trampled upon on the roads, in dustbins and elsewhere. People also buy key-chains, mobile covers, T-shirts and even Face masks on which national flag is printed. But all these acts lead to unintentional insult of our flag. Hence, stopping such insult of our National Flag is our duty as a Bharatiya.

To create awareness among citizens regarding this topic, patriotic Indians took to Twitter and started tweeting with hashtag #RespectNationalFlag. Soon it became one of the top 10 national trends on Twitter in India. It was on 4th spot for few hours. Some users also demanded action against some online sellers and platforms like Amazon, who are selling products such as face masks printed with flag.

Let’s have a look at some of the tweets from the trend :
