Singaporeans are encouraged to display the National Flag from Friday (Jul 1) to Sep 30, in celebration of Singapore’s 57th birthday.

The National Flag can be displayed at offices, building premises as well as residential areas without its flag pole and night illumination, said the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) in a statement on Thursday (Jun 30).

The ministry also added that the flag, which is a national symbol, should be treated with respect and used in a dignified and appropriate manner by the public.

Singaporeans should follow the guidelines for using the National Flag, which includes not using torn or worn-out flags for display.

MCCY is also reaching out to the public for feedback regarding the proposed new National Symbols Regulations which will replace the Singapore Arms and Flag and National Anthem (SAFNA) rules.

The proposal aims to provide greater flexibility when displaying the National Flag. Singaporeans may share their feedback by Friday (Jul 8).
