Sabhi ko nav varsh aur gudi padwa ki shubhkamnaye."

In Gudi Padwa, people hoist Gudi flags, which are made of bright and colourful silk-scarfs atop a bamboo stick, along with boughs of neem and mango leaves and it is capped with a silver or bronze kalash, which signifies victory. Often people add flower garlands to the Gudi flags.
