Nitte DU Flag Hoisting Ceremony

Feb 14, 2023

The second highest flagpole in the State, measuring 164 feet, has been built in the courtyard of Justice KS Hegde Charitable Hospital in Deralakatte by Nitte University. On 14th February IGP Chandragupta, West Zone, hoisted the first flag on the new pole.

The hoisted flag measures 30 ft x 45 ft. The pole has an electrically operated hoisting and unfurling system.

IGP Chandragupta stated that sacred acts such as the large-scale hoisting of the national flag will fulfil thoughts of uplifting the country through noble values and the national flag will convey the message of sacrifice, bravery, self-confidence, peace and harmony.

N. Vinaya Hegde, Chancellor of Nitte (DU), stated that the organisation has been running a hospital in Deralakatte for 24 years. It is an honour to unveil a massive national flag as we celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the institution. When entering an educational institution, every student should salute the national flag. He also said that while size and height are unimportant, the significance of the national flag should be widely known.
