My flag is torn and tattered and I did not budget to buy a new one this year.
The haze will return and obscure visibility anyway.
I am going out during National Day, don't intend to hang around.
My neighbours all didn't hang leh. So united we stand.
Wait for Gment to hand out free flags then hang. Keeping that $10 in my wallet is more practical.
It's too early. What's the hurry. My national day is on Aug 15/Oct 1/Jun 12, etc.

Every year I will hang up the Singapore Flag with utmost pride and respect before National Day and I do it with my children together. Although they are still young to understand the full meaning of this momentous occasion, I am very happy to inculcate in them a sense of belonging and to think how grateful we are for being Singaporeans in such a joyous day. I hope everyone feels and do the same with no reservations whatsoever. Happy National Day to All.
So sad if its true
Stateless people know what it is like not to have a country.
People in failed states have no hope for the future. People from failed states (Afghanistan, Bangladesh & Iran) get on a leaky boat to risk everything just to get to another country (Australia), hoping to be accepted as refugees.
There was a precedent 4 decades ago when Vietnamese escaped in boats after the fall of South Vietnam. Some managed to be accepted as Australian citizens. The subsequent success and prosperity of these Vietnamese families in Australia has given inspiration to the present-day Afghan, Bangla and Iranian refugees. Unfortunately for them, Kevin Rudd has just closed the door.

Was referring to previous thread where PRC flag was hung instead.
If not wrong, can't anyhow happy happy display other countries flag in public.Originally Posted by ManWearPants
Even our own Singapore flag can't anyhow display/fly it. Need to have certain standard & respect, eg need a pole, lighting at night etc.
Only during National Day (July till Sept?) period that the law "relax" which allow to hang the flag outside flat etc.
Regardless of political leanings, lets all come together to wish our Muslim Brothers and Sisters a Happy Selamat Hari Raya Adilfitri and our Nation a Happy Birthday over the next 2 days
Free or buy.... show some class and pride and hang our flag
One proud man. No one should complain about flag flying anymore
well my block used to have RC members knock on every door to remind ppl to hang.
nowadays they just auto hang the whole block themselves just to make the block nice.
