Driving past the Session/Magistrate Court of Segamat earlier today, I was shocked to see another district flag being flown upside-down!
- Why Was the Johor Flag Flown Upside Down at the Desaru Tunamaya?
- Flag Of Muar Flown Upside-Down At Sime Darby Property’s Bandar Universiti Pagoh
- Mistakes In Designs Of Vertical Flags Of Johor
This time it is the Segamat district flag which was flown upside-down in the area of the government building.
The worst thing is, the upside-down flag was flown in front of the court itself!
The district of Segamat’s flag bears a crescent and star as symbols representing the Sultan of Johor and the religion of Islam.
Hence, flying the flag upside-down is a sign of disrespect not only to the district of Segamat, but also to the religion of Islam, the Sultan of Johor and the state of Johor.
I am very sad that such grave mistake regarding such a serious matter happens in the area of a court building.
It is as if the government authority does not bother to make sure that its staffs understand how to fly flags in the proper manner and follow the flag protocols.
This is a very serious matter and I’m urging the authorities to be more serious about flag protocols.
