National Day, August 9. ND Rally, August 20. A feature of the celebrations is the display of our Nation flags, plus buntings and banners, where applicable. Usually, these are up a week before August 9. To date, it’s seven weeks; since ND rally, a month.
In our precinct, each and every of our Nation flags are discoloured, including all the buntings and most of the banners. Many of these are badly discoloured. It’s downright disrespectful, disgraceful.
The 2nd pic. The Nation flag conceals the block number, 230F. Another discoloured Nation flag, torn in two places, pole not vertical, 900. As are all the other flags, Nation and community, tilted.
Flags are a pride of a nation. Especially for us. The meaning of the crescent and the five stars, the colours red and white. Flag raising and lowering are carried out with dignity.
Could we execute this right come August 9, 2018?
