Let's Celebrate National Defence Day & World Wildlife Day


National Defence Day
National Defence Day is observed on March 3 every year. To commemorate this day, world’s largest and tallest Indian tricolour was unfurled at Town Park in Faridabad. The flag weighs 48 kg and has a 96 feet by 64 feet dimension. It was hoisted at a height of 250 feet, making it the largest and the highest hoisted Indian flag in the world. 

World Wildlife Day
The World Wildlife Day is observed on March 3rd since 2014, to raise awareness of the World’s flora and fauna.
Why March 3rd was chosen as World Wildlife Day? 

Because on this date, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) of Wild Fauna and Flora was adopted.
