The Ipoh Flag flying high

Ever since i learned the meaning of flags, I always enjoy the sight of a perfect colorful flag flying high.


The higher it is, so much the better.


Now, having a flag is useless if its not properly flown on a mast or pole.

How you fly the flag leaves behind a meaning to whomever who sees it.

Of course, some people have went to certain extend of flying the flag differently. But still..Patriotic in its many ways!


Well, I have came to know of two different ways of flying the flag from its original full mast.

If you fly a flag at half mast, it denotes distress or a show of grief, such as mourning a death


Secondly, if you fly the flag upside-down, it would mean a sign of distress.




All this while, i have only known of these ways until i came down to Ipoh to only see this...



Not clear enough? Here's a closer look.


ITS FREAKING TORN!!! NOT SURE EVEN IF ITS THE IPOH FLAG!!

CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED HERE!! WHAT DOES THE FLAG/FLAGS SUPPOSE TO TELL ME??
