India Flag Raising Ceremony

August 10, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

The flyer is shaded with the colors of the India flag. There a splash of orange along the top then white with the crest in the middle. Then green with all the information for the flag raising.

The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven Fulop, Office of Municipal Council and Office of Cultural Affairs are proud to recognize the Indian Patriots of New Jersey as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Independence of India during the Flag Raising Ceremony on Wednesday, August 10, 2022.

 The observance of the 75th Anniversary of India’s Independence reaffirms the dedication of the Indian people all around the world to the highest ideals of democracy and freedom. It is a celebration that recognizes the leadership of Mahatma Ghandi whose philosophy of non-violence was used in creative ways including Ghandi’s famous march to the sea to make salt – which was a precursor to the civil rights marches in the United States. As a result, India’s Independence was achieved and is a testament to the principles of fairness, dignity, peace and democracy.

 The members of Indian community has directly contributed to the diversity and positive growth of Jersey City in various fields, including education, entrepreneurship, government, literature, drama, sculpture, music, food, and culture, as well as all aspects of life throughout the United States and abroad; and continues to influence our beliefs, embedded values and quest for independence.  The City of Jersey City and members of the Indian community commemorate this day by proudly displaying the flags of the United States and India together, high above City Hall, in recognition of the socially adopted culture and ethnic diversity of our community of Jersey City.



Members of the organization Indian Patriots of New Jersey join Mayor Steven M. Fulop, Council President Joyce Waterman, Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey, Councilman Yousef Saleh and Councilman James Solomon.
