“The Har Ghar Tiranga campaign has been launched by the government of India at the behest of the Prime Minister. Science City wanted to contribute to this campaign in a small way. With this thought and to commemorate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Indian Independence of our country, it was decided to distribute 75 flags among 75 visitors,” said Anurag Kumar, director of Science City. 

The visitors took photographs with the Tricolour in front of the sundial at Science City.
