The Chakra of the flag has been printed by using specialized printing process. National Flag of the dimension of 20x30 on such lofty height is known as 'Monumental Flag', which is not lowered at the sunset as they are adequately illuminated during night time. This comes after a policy decision by the Ministry of Home Affairs on December 23, 2009, which allowed the National Flag to fly day and night on a flagpole of a height of 100 ft. and above with proper illumination.
Flag Foundation of India has installed 16 monumental flagpoles in Haryana. The concept of monumental flagpoles was conceived by the founder of the Flag Foundation, Naveen Jindal, in 2009 and the first monumental flagpole measuring 207 ft. in height was installed at Kaithal, Haryana followed by commissioning in cities such as Hisar, Ladwa, Sonipat, Gannaur, Gurgaon, Kurukshetra, Rohtak, etc.
The hoisting of the monumental flag pole is part of Flag Foundation of India's initiative to inspire every Indian to take pride in displaying the National Flag and instill a sense of nationalism and patriotism among citizens. The Flag Foundation of India has so far installed 46 such 100 feet high monumental flagpoles across the country and 12 monumental flagpoles at a height of 207 feet.
