Further, under the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, citizens have to hoist the national flag as per the rules of the Flag Code of India.
The Flag Code is a set of rules and regulations devised by the government that pertains to the manufacturing, hosting, and disposing of, when the need arises, of the national flag.
It also talks about the orientation, size, and base material of the flag. The code mentions various violations that can attract a fine or imprisonment as well.

or displayed in an inverted manner. Other restrictions include the national flag being used as a form of drapery, printed on handkerchiefs, or any dress material.
