The Union Flag over the Lucknow Residency Featured 6 Jun 2016 Print

The Union Flag over the Lucknow Residency

On 15 August, 1947, British India ended and the two new Dominions of India and Pakistan came into being under Independence. New flags were raised at the new capitals, Delhi and Karachi respectively. On this day the flag over the ruins of Lucknow Residency was lowered for the first and last time, since 1858 - the year in which direct British rule in India replaced that of the British East India Company following the Indian Mutiny, or Sepoy Rebellion, of 1857-1858. Date: 23/08/1947
