Display of National Flag during National Day Celebrations Period

30 June 2017

1. Singapore will celebrate its 52nd anniversary as an independent sovereign nation on 9 August 2017. The National Flag is Singapore's most visible symbol of statehood, a symbol of our national unity and resilience.

As such, we urge all organisations and households to fly the National Flag at their offices, building premises, and residential premises during the National Day celebration period, 1 July to 30 September 2017.
