#Vadodara : Gusty winds blowing across the city since late Thursday evening caused a tear to Gujarat’s #tallest national flag located at Sama talav .

As soon as the news of the damage to the flag reached the VMC officials, Commissioner Vinod Rao rushed to the spot along with a team of Vadodara Fire and Emergency Services. Seven to eight persons, including officers of the fire department, pulled down the flag from the post. The VMC also quickly sent a tailor to the spot to stitch the torn saffron stripe of the flag.
The Flag Code of India does not provide for the repair of a damaged flag. According to it, the “damaged or soiled flag shall be destroyed, preferably by burning or any other method consistent with the dignity of the Flag.” However, Commissioner Vinod Rao said, “As far as we understand, minor repairs can be made to the flag. We will look into the Code.”
