A matter of greatest pride for
KKGSS(F) is that the tri-colours, wherever they are
fluttering in the sky, or will be fluttering soon,
are produced here.
During the five decades since its inception, the Federation
(KKGSS) has made tremendous progress, expanded range
of its products culminating in the production of National
Flags. The KKGSS is the only centre in India to produce
the national flags.
National Flag has been reserved for the Khadi Sector
for supply to various Govt. agencies, Ministry of
Defence, Para Military Forces, etc for official use.
For the production of National Flags, the Bureau of
Indian Standards (BIS) has set some standards in the
design constructional details and other particulars.
It should be made of hand spun and hand woven cotton
Khadi bunting. Earlier whatever National Flags were
being produced they were not up to the BIS norms.
Later, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission
accorded permission to KKGSS to produce the tri-colours
and supply them to the entire Nation. Production of
National Flags as per strict guidelines of BIS is
not an easy task, because, any defect in the Flags
