Marking India’s 74th Independence Day, Snapchat has a new filter for you. Thanks to the global pandemic, all the flag hoisting and celebrations will have to be postponed for better times but it can still be done virtually.

Snapchat has a virtual flag hoisting experience for you that’s followed by a shower of tricoloured confetti when you use the special Independence Day lens on the app.

This special lens was created by one of Snapchat’s official lens creators in India, Jagmeet Singh and it can be activated by raising a salute. The filter is one way to be a part of the action and the celebration without leaving your house.

How to use it
