The first Baisakhi took place in 1699 in the month of Vaisakh.

Since then, every year, on the 13th of April, many Sikhs go to their place of worship called Gurudwara.

There they join in prayers and special services which may last all day.

In front of every Gurudwara there is a flagpole where a flag called Nishan Sahib flies at all times. The flag bears the Khanda, the Sikh symbol. The flagpole is dressed in orange robes.

Each year at Baisakhi, the flagpole is lowered so that the robes can be removed. The flagpole is then washed with yoghurt which sikhs consider to be very pure. After that everyone helps to raise the flagpole again with new robes and a new flag flying from the top for another year.
