Dimapur, February 12: The Federal Government of Nagaland (FGN) has issued a reminder to legally use the Naga national flag, as the NNC/FGN has already adopted a statute on the same.
A reminder issued by Capt (Retd) Yirei Lungleng, kilonser, rali wali, FGN, said the Naga national flag will be used only on the occasions of the nation and no individual or group should make/use the Naga national flag without the permission of the NNC/FGN.
Any individual or group who illegally uses the Naga national flag will be marked as a usurper, he said.
“Since our people (Naga people) have democratically constituted the Naga National Council (NNC) on 2nd February, 1946 to safeguard the sovereign birthright of our people as a nation, and overwhelmingly given immutable mandate by our people to NNC through voluntary Plebiscite on 16th May, 1951, the mandated Naga National Council, through prayerful search and clear indication from God Almighty, brought out the Naga National Flag.”
“This flag of our nation was thus, for the first time, hoisted on 22nd March, 1956 at Parashen, Rengma Region when our people under the banner of mandated NNC proclaimed the Federal Government of Nagaland (FGN) through a Federation. Therefore NNC/FGN, the owner of our national flag has officially been using our national Flag only on the occasions of the nation and doing the same till date,” it stated.
The FGN rued that “some unauthorized individuals, organizations and groups are illegally making so-called national flags and using them on several occasions, and reminded all to legally use the Naga national flag. (Page News Service)
