Ahead of the 75th Independence Day, the Indian Army on Tuesday unfurled the tallest Tricolour in Jammu and Kashmir.

The 100-feet-high national flag was hoisted at Gulmarg, which is a famous tourist destination of Kashmir valley.

“The 100 feet high Indian flag symbolises the beginning of a new era of peace and patriotism in Kashmir. The project has been jointly executed by the Indian Army and Solar Industries Pvt Ltd. Foundation stone of the project was laid on February 7, 2021 and the flag dedicated to the nation on August 10, 2021,” the Army said in a statement.

After the flag hoisting ceremony, the army accorded honour to the Tricolour by saluting it.
