Fly the flag...

Fly the flag!

Some blocks of HDB flats are already flying the National Flag since last week.
It gives such a celebratory mood doesn't it?

Singapore Flags

Did you know that outside the National Day celebrations period (1 Jul to 30 Sep), the Singapore flag must always be flown only from a flagpole?

Singapore Flags

The Singapore Flag was unveiled on 3 Dec 1959.  It was 6 months after it was self-governing within the British Empire, that it was officially adopted.

Upon independence on 9 August 1965,  it was adopted as the National flag.

Have you seen the Singapore flag when it had the Union Jack long ago? It's like the current Australian or New Zealand flag. Hop on to this wiki link if you are interested.
