Let me push a pointer into every Singaporeans thinking hat. And hope to get the most probable reason why.

If Singaporeans are so proud about the country's success and status, why are there lesser and lesser numbers of people flying the National Flag each National Day? So, is silent golden?

Many of those blocks of flats flying the flags enmassed were the works of the ruling party's grassroot organisations effort to project some nationalism.

What is the root cause of the effect of not flying the National Flag?

Yes, less and less people are flying their Singapore flag during national day. But does it mean if some Singaporeans hang their flags, they are proud and in celebrating mood towards national day? I saw a few hang flags at my block, though they only form a minority, but I know a few that hang flags are actually members in the forum Razz Razz

Maybe they are really loyal and proud, I dont know. But I believe the main reason why they hang Singapore flag is because, monkey see, monkey do Razz

Anyway I have this to say to government of Singapore. If you want me to hang Singapore flag, can, no problem. Pay me money to do it, and I will hang the flag for as long as you want. Everything is about money now, isnt it? Razz Anyway it does not mean that if I dont hang my Singapore flag on national day, means I am not loyal and dont love Singapore anymore. But it would be nice to get paid to hang flag. Afterall, I am doing a service to you. Even people who do charity work get paid millions to do charity. Razz

On a serious note, that is how majority of Singaporeans feel, though not so extreme as to demand getting paid for hanging flags like me Very Happy Singaporeans just couldnt be bothered anymore thanks to all the money talk attitude of the government.

SG flag? waste my time and money. But even it is FOC, whocares.
I would rather fly my red/white underwear. It would be much nicer and furthermore there is no time restriction. Can fly it throughout the whole year.

flying the flag is not a problem
but when you forgot to keep it after the occassion, or due to weather, flag kanna become rug, you get summon.
so why do something that will waste more money.
