Indian Student Association plans flag-hoisting ceremony

Northwest Missouri State University’s Indian Student Association will host a flag-hoisting ceremony at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Joyce and Harvey White International Plaza in commemoration of the Indian Independence Day.

Students plan to assemble at the Flag Plaza to raise the Indian national flag and sing their national anthem.

The public is invited to attend, and refreshments will be served afterward.

India attained its independence from British control on Aug. 15, 1947, and the holiday is observed annually throughout India with flag-hoisting ceremonies, parades and cultural events.
