Independence Day is celebrated grandly in India with varying festivities. August 15 marks the day India became free from the British forces after 200 years of colonial rules. Indians celebrate the day remembering the contributions and celebrations of the freedom fighters. People dress in tricolour, hoist the national flag and salute it. People decorate their houses and offices in the colours of saffron, white and green. They also make rangoli designs and flower kolam patterns on their doorway in the three colours signifying the festival.
