When we asked many what was the one thing they associated with Patriotism, the answer was unanimous! - "The National Flag"

Experience The Tricolor Get a sense of a Monumental Flag taking wings

Crowdfunding the Monumental Flag in Chennai

We noticed talking to people that in the minds of many, the national flag is associated with words like bureaucracy, government offices - but never with the people that it represents. We want this flag at the Marina to represent the citizens of the city - the same spirit that comes up time and time when adversity rises and steps up. We want this flag to represent the third pillar of democracy - BY THE PEOPLE.

We realize that installing monumental flag costs a lot. But we want anyone who wants to be part of this to be able to contribute - as little as Rs. 10 (or as much as you can). This is something that we should be proudly be able to call "Namma Flag".

Note : Contributions to the Chennai Tricolor Initiative Trust are eligible for tax benefits under Section 80G.


Contribute. Be a Part of the Tricolor Flag at the Marina.

The Chennai Tricolor Initiative is a registered Charitable Trust, and a Non-Profit effort driven by volunteers. Contributions are eligible for Tax Benefits under Section 80G.

* updated: 11 Aug 2017

Cost of the Project

It costs 80 Lakhs (INR 80,00,000) to fulfill this initiative of installing a 207ft monumental National Flag at the Marina (and one year of maintenance costs). We are looking to raise 50 Lakhs (INR 50,00,000) of that amount from the public via crowdfunding. The rest of the amount is being arranged via sale of merchandise, corporate sponsors and the support of Patrons of this city.


Who Are We?

We are folks, just like you. Everyday citizens who have a day job, work hard and happen to love this city that we live in. What started off as a thought has today garnered quite a few volunteers who are driving this (and we are open to anyone being part of this initiative).
