Flag Satyagraha was a peaceful civil disobedience movement of the freedom struggle of India in which people were hoisting flags everywhere under their right to hoist the national flag. This movement took place mainly in 1923 in Nagpur, but in other places of India, there were movements at different times.

The center of MP Flag satyagraha was Jabalpur. Jhanda Satyagraha in March (1923), the local authorities had started a tussle over the flag hoisting of the tricolor in Jabalpur. It was a time of political examination for the local leadership. The tussle started when the Congress members flagged the municipal building on 8 March 1923.

On making waves, the European Deputy Commissioner got angry and ordered to take down the flag. As a result, the flag movement started. The Satyagrahis were prosecuted, with imprisonment for a month. Later, the center of the flag satyagraha became Nagpur, then a team led by Subhadra Kumari Chauhan and her husband Lakshman Singh was sent to Nagpur. Soon the movement took on an all-India form. On 18 August 1923, the British authorities gave permission to take out a procession of hundred volunteers. The leadership of this procession was led by Makhanlal Chaturvedi, Vallabhbhai Patel, Babu Rajendra Prasad. The movement ended after Sunderlal bowed down and thus achieved his goal. It was a politically important organization. In the same year, Lala Lajpat Rai traveled to many places of the state including Sagar to give impetus to the freedom struggle.
