Online poll: Majority of Singaporeans have not hung National flag yet
Posted by temasektimes on August 6, 2012
Despite the open call by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to Singaporeans to show their ‘love’ for Singapore by hanging the national flag publicly, it appears the majority of Singaporeans have ignored his pleas.
A quick look around reveals few flags hung outside most HDB flats with the exception of those facing the MRT tracks and main roads. As for private estates, hardly any flags can be noticed.
In a poll conducted on Facebook, some 91% or 363 out of 397 respondents have not hung the national flag yet.
Some comments from true blue native Singaporeans:
“Please ask all New Citizens to do it…The Singapore flag is hang in my heart & not for show & others to see..” – Ng Teck Guan
“Not hanging bcos dun kw hang which country of flag…” – Jessica Yeo
“No need me to hang, my constituency(Mountbatten) hired FT to hung the flag FREE” – Peter Chan
