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

EDITORS COMMENTS
"On the 15th of August, 1947, India and Pakistan officially gained their independence from British rule, marking the end of a 200-year-long British presence in the Indian subcontinent. This poignant image captures the moment the Union Flag was lowered for the last time over the ruins of the Lucknow Residency on August 23, 1947. The Residency, a symbol of British power during the colonial era, had stood as the administrative center of British rule in Lucknow since 1858, following the Indian Mutiny, or Sepoy Rebellion, of 1857-1858. With the dawn of a new era, the Union Flag was replaced by the Indian and Pakistani flags at the capitals of Delhi and Karachi, respectively. This photograph, taken on August 23, 1947, serves as a poignant reminder of a significant moment in history, marking the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter for India and Pakistan."
