The word 'Tricolour' or 'Tiranga' itself brings a sense of patriotism in all Indians. Our flag has three equal segments of saffron, white and green colors along with a navy blue Ashoka Chakra in between. Saffron indicates strength or courage, white denotes truth and green represents our fertile India.
Independence day in India is usually celebrated by hoisting the flag in schools and other public places in the morning of August 15th. Same is done on the Republic day i.e. January 26th. Kids come in their school uniform and sing our National Anthem after the flag hoisting. Usually sweets and small flags are distributed among kids. The whole celebration gets over in 1-2 hours.
Nowadays people have started celebrating Indian Independence Day more elaborately. They love to wear tricolour dresses and even make tricolored dishes on these special days. There are Independence day parties among Indians living abroad. Food plays an important role in such get togethers. People often enjoy preparing food with the theme of tricolour. Some families make tri coloured dishes just in their homes to celebrate the day with kids. So here is a list of ideas that I have prepared over the years.
