7th December:"Armed Forces Flag Day" or "Flag Day of India"
It is a day dedicated to India towards collection of funds from people of India for the welfare of the Indian Armed Forces personnel.
On August 28, 1949 a committee set up under the defence minister decided to observe a Flag Day annually on December 7.
The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.
The Flag day is mainly observed to serve three basic purposes:-
1.Rehabilitation of battle casualties
2.Welfare of serving personnel and their families
3.Resettlement and welfare of ex-servicemen and their families.
It is a time for Indians to express its gratitude and appreciation to the current and veteran military personnel of India and to acknowledge those who died in service to the country.
