Thread: Can You Spot The Mistake?

    Default Can You Spot The Mistake?

    Was looking out of the windows one early evening and spotted one big mistake home owner makes, and that's not the only one, saw a few in some other estate too. Sigh.... what a shame.

    No, not the plant/trees. Take a closer look again, something to do with our National Day.

    The lower National Flag - wrong side.

    Very common, can see it every year at several estates.

    You're right. Just wonder why people hang their flag without notice which is the correct direction, just hang blindly.

    It is very dangerous if not properly secure or hang. Sure to kill someone if drops directly and hits someone's head.

    I think the reason for such mistake is simple.

    For the person who's going to hang the flag will hold it up in front of him/her. Look at it, right side up (the crescent moon and stars at his/her top left) in his/her view. Then hang it as it is on the parapet wall.

    Hung that way, viewing from the outside will be reversed as seen in your photo.

    An innocent mistake.

    if you're hanging a flag on the wall horizontally, the emblem (moon/stars) should be on the left side. when vertical, it should be on the upper right corner (please correct me if i'm wrong)

    I find nothing wrong with it, look at our flags hanging on the pole, does it have two different side, looking on one side is straight, looking on the other side is not, so there is nothing wrong with it, it only a person perspective look. Yes I know the flag hang on the other side is very awkward, but some people may see it differently.

    you go to it. :)

    Hang for themselves to see, didn't think that when you turn it over, it'll be wrong

    Yeah, branding trees is a cruel act. There must be a law somewhere against that ....

    That house must belong to some Foreign Talent who just got their new citizenship. must give them some time to figure out how the flag look like.

    The town council did a piss poor job of ensuring that every floor has a flag... there's your mistake.
