Bedi, who inaugurated the celebrations by contributing to the Flag Day Fund, said families of ex-servicemen and other service personnel should be taken care of as a mark of gratitude. Accordingly, a committee under the defence minister chose to observe a Flag Day annually on December 7, where small flags would be distributed to the general population and donations would be collected. The occasion is an attempt by the armed forces to forge a link between the Indian armed forces and the civilian population.
