The Armed Forces Flag Day is an occasion for the citizens of the country to recognize and pay tribute to the courage and dedication of the Indian Defence Forces. It is also a befitting occasion to express our gratitude to the valiant combatants by way of generous contributions towards the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund.
To mark this day, stickers and token flags are presented in return for voluntary participation and support for Armed Force Flag Day Fund. This fund is utilized for the welfare and benefit of the widows, disabled soldiers, ex-servicemen and their dependants.
I, therefore, urge people from all sections of the society to contribute generously towards this noble cause and to express solidarity with our Armed Forces.
I convey my best wishes to all those who are associated with the welfare of the Indian Armed Forces.
