JAMESJG.COM highlighted the wrong version of our State Flag on the header of the Sarawak Government official portal recently.
We made a quick visit this evening to see if the correct flag has been use. Yupp… the header has been changed and the correct flag being used.
Thank you to the State Information Dept for their fast action to notify the webmaster of the portal. However, the usage of the wrong flag is widely used in Sarawak, which could show the lack of patriotism among Sarawakian today.
Maybe the Information Dept can issue a directive to all agencies, corporate bodies and the media on the correct flag (both horizontal and vertical versions) and their way of usage. During the time of writing this post, we have observed that three types of flag have been wrongly displayed, including the latest one, which uses a ‘fat’ star.
There must be a mechanism to check that the suppliers of the state flag supply the correct one to the public. Worst to worst, the state flag should only be produced/supply by authorised supplier(s) of the state government.
Till then.. selamat hari raya aidilfitri, maaf zahir dan batin to all my muslim readers.
