    On March 5, India hoisted the National Flag at Attari. However it was torn due to strong winds. The flag had to be replaced within a couple of days. The flag has already been replaced five times since. In fact on one occasion the flag fell to the ground when the daily beating retreat ceremony was on.

    The Pakistan government decided to hoist this flag after many had complained about dampened spirits. They said that the Indian flag could be seen from Lahore and this had dampened their spirits.
