Singapore Flag & Pole

Post by sgstrait » Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:56 am

Any idea where I can buy (or be given) a decent sized flag (like around a metre wide) and a pole/support? I want to put one on my balcony, and thump my chest with pride on National Day.

Thanks

Just ensure the flag is correct, and is hanged properly .. or you will be in Stomp/TOC/TRS (choose one .. )

A few Flags out for SG50 seem to be of 'wrong' design .. and suddenly a lot of Singapore Flag Specialists are crying foul.

The computer image (Moon & Stars) was probably flipped vertically so that the star point that is supposed to be at 12 o'clock is at 6 o'clock. Would have been an easy mistake to make.

Well, try telling that to the hordes of sudden Patriots (who are extremely mad especially when the error is done by a Govt side manufacturer .. :))

Preposterous!

Ministers get paid handsomely so that they are motivated enough not to make mistakes and make sure that motivation flows all the way downstream.

Yeah, in today's xenophobic atmosphere, I reckon you probably could.

It probably applies to all but a few countries and this is something very obvious (the findings of this survey). Afterall nationalism is often not so far away from racism and large part of it uses national symbols.

Could be worse http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-news-from ... e-33758635, at least the incorrect SG flag isn't that of another country :D
