GUWAHATI, Dec 7: Armed Forces Flag Day was celebrated at Raj Bhawan today. It is for the fourth time that the Armed Forces Flag Day was observed here. Every year, December 7 is observed as the ‘Armed Forces Flag Day’ throughout the country since 1949 with an aim to honour the martyrs and the men in uniform who not only fought valiantly for the country’s honour and safety but laid their lives for the sake of the motherland.

Paying tributes to the brave and martyred soldiers for their selfless service for safeguarding the security and integrity of the Nation, Assam Governor (Prof.) Jagdish Mukhi said that Armed Forces Flag Day is an occasion to extend our honour to the soldiers, sailors and airmen and  generate funds for the welfare of the jawans of Indian Armed Forces and their dependents.
