Netizens have been circulating the photo above, suggesting that the installation at Changi Airport features a flag that’s flying backwards instead of forwards.
Many have commented that this is a fail on the part of the airport and the photo has been carried on several Facebook pages and a few local news websites.
However, the fact is that the flag is deliberately blowing backwards in this installation, which is a replica of the NS Landmark located at the Singapore Armed Forces’ Basic Military Training Centre (BMTC).
The original installation has two sides, one showing the flag flying correctly and the reverse side showing a Singapore soldier.
