Prevent misuse of National Flag : High Court


OST Bureau

Cuttack, Aug 14

The Odisha High Court today instructed the state government to strictly adhere to the National Flag Code 2002 and prevent misuse of the National Flag.


The court also directed the government to impose restrictions on use of plastic and paper flags that are generally sold in the market which many see as an act of dishonouring the National Flag.

Hoisting and use of the National Flag is regulated by the Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950; the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971; and Flag Code of India, 2002.
