According to a few sections of media, the protesting farmers who arrived at the Red Fort did not hoist a Khalistani flag during the Republic Day tractor march but instead placed the Nishan Sahib, a Sikh flag, on the monument’s ramparts.
Other journalists also pointed out that the flag placed by the farmers was on a different mast and did not replace the Indian tricolor.
What is the Nishan Sahib?
"The Nishan Sahib is usually hoisted outside a gurdwara. The triangular flag is mounted on a steel pole, which is also covered with a saffron-colored cloth. It holds great significance for the Sikh community." — The Print reported.
