The Armed Forces Flag Day is an occasion to pay our tributes towards the courage and dedication of our armed forces in defending our country. On this day, tokens and flags are distributed in return for voluntary donations towards the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund which is utilised for rehabilitation of wounded servicemen, resettlement of ex-servicemen and welfare of the families of those who have lost their lives while performing selfless service to the nation. 

On the occasion of the Armed Forces Flag Day 2012, I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to all the personnel of the armed forces and their families. I also appeal to all our people to contribute generously towards the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund and uphold the noble cause that it serves.

 Lt Gen (Retd) Bhopinder Singh
