In addition to this, since Section 370 has been scrapped, the state will not have a separate flag. Earlier both the State and National Flag were hoisted side by side. The red flag of Jammu and Kashmir had three stripes, representing the three regions of the erstwhile state- Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. The plough on the flag represented the farmer. The flag was made the official one by state constituent assembly in 1952.

The scrapping of Article 370 also meant that the separate Constitution of J&K ceases to exist.
