NCC FLAG

The NCC flag for various units of the NCC was first introduced in 1951. The flag was of same pattern, colour and size as was used by various regiments of the Army. The only difference was that it had the NCC badge and unit designation placed in the centre. Later on it was felt that the flag should be in keeping with the inter-service character of the Corps. In 1954 the existing tricolour flag was introduced. The three colours in the flag depict the three services of the Corps, red for the Army, deep blue for the Navy and light blue for the Air Force. The letters NCC and the NCC crest in gold in the middle of the flag encircled by a wreath of lotus, give the flag a colourful look and a distinct identity. 17 Lotus represent 17 directorates. The top 2 dots represent one is OTA Kamptee and other is OTA Gwalior.



BENEFITS OF JOINING NCC

We have already mentioned that joining NCC develops interpersonal skills of the students. NCC training helps students who want to join Indian Arm Forces but it's not the compulsion to the trainee to join any part of Indian Army after completion of the training. Benefits of NCC also includes self-discipline and problem-solving skills.
