Singapore 44th National Day 9th August 2009

Singapore 44th National Day 9th August 2009

On 9th August 2009, we celebrated Singapore 44th National Day. I didn’t manage to get any tickets (through e-balloting via NDP website) for the National Day Parade (NDP) and hence will have to watch the live telecast on TV. But I can still show you the decorations that the country put up during this period of celebration. The above photo is taken from my apartment window.

Apartment block 406 in Ang Mo Kio – Nice display of Singapore national flag. In fact, all of the flags are displayed and not a single one is missing. Well done!

Previously, I understand that Singapore national flag can only be displayed by individuals during the month of August but recently the regulations was relaxed. You can now display the flag during the National Day celebrations period (1 July— 30 September).
