A celebration of Indian independence featured a flag-raising in the western suburbs Sunday.

Members of the Indian community joined Naperville's mayor and other state officials in raising India's flag Sunday morning.

The event celebrates India's independence from British rule back in 1947. In India, Independence Day is observed on August 15.

In addition to the Naperville celebration, a flag-raising also took place Sunday at Oak Brook's Polo Cub.
