The programme envisages inspiring Indians everywhere to hoist the national flag at their homes. The aim of the programme is to make the relationship with the national flag a more personal one rather than just keeping it formal or institutional and invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people and promote awareness about the tricolour.
