Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi changed his profile picture and put 'Tricolour' on his social media pages; and urged people to put the flag on their accounts on social media platforms between August 2 to 15, there has been a wave of social media accounts following the lead. This is part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav celebration, under which the Centre has also started "Har Ghar Tiranga", which has become a mass movement across the country.

If you're trying to update your profile photo on social media in order to show your support to the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' movement, here's how you can do it.
