14. Who was the chief guest at the first Republic Day event?

15. What is the difference between hoisting the flag on Independence Day and Republic Day?

Every year, on Independence Day and Republic Day, people celebrate it in a patriotic manner by taking part in various activities and decorating offices, public buildings, and schools with the tricolour.

But raising the flag on Independence Day vs raising it on Republic Day is a very different thing. The national flag is lowered and subsequently raised on Independence Day. The tricolour is then raised by the prime minister. The nation’s historic separation from British rule will be commemorated on this day. On Republic Day, however, the flag is raised without being pulled up and is fastened at the top. This suggests that the nation is independent already.

The Indian Constituent Assembly passed the Constitution on November 26, 1949, and it went into force on January 26, 1950 with a democratic style of government, completing the process of the nation’s transition to an independent republic.

One of the biggest contrasts is that the prime minister of India hoists the tricolour on Independence Day in place of the president, who is the constitutional head, because at the time of independence, the Indian Constitution was not in effect and neither had the president assumed office. However, on Republic Day, the president, who was the nation’s first citizen, is present and raises the flag.

16. When was the Indian national flag adopted?

The Indian Constituent Assembly approved the national flag’s design on July 22, 1947.

17. Who designed the Indian national flag?

During a meeting of the All India Congress Committee in Vijaywada in 1921, Pingali Venkayya designed the Indian flag and gave it to Mahatma Gandhi. The flag at the time was made of the colours green and saffron, which stood for India’s Muslim and Hindu communities.

On the banks of the Ravi River, Nehru raised our country’s flag on December 31 of that year. He called for “Poorna Swaraj,” or total autonomy. The time was fixed. 26 January 1930

18. Was January 26 celebrated as Independence Day?

The Poorna Swaraj resolution or the Declaration of Independence was approved by Congress on that day. This was observed as Independence Day up until 1947.

On August 15, 1947, India attained independence. The day was chosen because it was two years ago on this day when Japan submitted to the Allies, bringing an end to World War II. When India’s Constitution was ratified on November 26, 1949, it felt like the best day to celebrate becoming a republic would be January 26. Thus, January 26 became our Republic Day in 1950.

In other words, even though India was still ruled by the British, it first observed independence on the day we commemorate becoming a republic.
