Also known as the Karnataka Foundation Day or Karnataka day, the Kannada Rajyotsava is celebrated on 1st November annually. This day came into reality in 1956 when all the Kannada-speaking regions united to become one state. At first, it was known as the State of Mysore but later it the name changed to Karnataka. Thus, it is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm in the Kannada-speaking regions.

Talking about the language, there are many spoken dialects of the Kannada language used in different parts. These dialects in divided into 4 groups, Coastal dialects, Northern dialects, South Karnataka dialects and South-Western dialects. Every year, the natives of Karnataka gather together and celebrate the day by hoisting the State flag, organizing cultural events, partaking in processions, and distribution of Rajyotsava awards. A vibrant scenario is created by the natives of Karnataka on this day.

Just like the bright hues of red and yellow in the flag of Karnataka, the whole State is covered with colourful aura. The day celebrations start with the flag hoisting while everyone sings the state anthem as a mark of respect. These ceremonies usually take place at community centres, including stately offices, universities, and schools.
However, the main celebration is organized in the Krantiveera Stadium, Bengaluru. The Chief Minister itself takes the initiative to hoist the flag and deliver a speech. The Governor of the State also comes to join the celebration. Besides this, the Governor himself announces the Rajyotsava awards (second-highest civilian award by the state) to the eminent personalities who tried their best to put up a good change in this State.
