December 31, 1929 - January 1, 1930, that the Tri-Colour Flag was unfurled by
the nationalists and a pledge taken that every year on January 26, the
"Independence Day" would be celebrated and that the people would

and dress. And, no other country in the world can parade so many ethnically
different people in splendid uniforms as India's Armed Forces. But they are
all united in their proven loyalty to the Government elected by the people
and in their proud traditions and legendary gallantry.
Officially, Republic Day is celebrated all over the country - national
capital, state capitals, municipal corporations, panchayats, and other
official agencies. At the level of the people, it is observed in homes,
housing colonies, schools, colleges and institutions of every kind.
