Symbolic of this first day of independence, an annual flag-raising ceremony is held at Red Fort, Delhi, with the Prime Minister in attendance. Citizens sing the national anthem and commemorate leaders of the independence movement. Movies about freedom fighters are broadcast, and various cultural programmes are held in schools and neighborhoods, with children participating in plays and competitions.

Many choose to spend this national holiday with family, friends, and their communities. Flying kites is a long-standing Independence Day tradition, so don’t forget to look up and spot a few tricolor kites soaring high in the sky.

Happy Independence Day, India!
