Ever thought of hanging the Singapore Flag as some decoration? Ever wondered how should the flag be placed among other flags? Well, if you didn't know, there are official guidelines on using the flag. Lets take a look at them.

The National Flag - Guidelines

Singaporeans and non-governmental buildings may display or fly the national flag to identify with the nation. Singaporeans are encouraged to do this during occasions of national celebration or national significance.

How it may be used
1. When the flag is displayed outside a building, it shall be displayed on or in front of the building. Outside the National Day celebrations period (month of August), it must be flown only from a flagpole, and if it is displayed or flown at night, it should be properly illuminated.

2. Within Singapore, it should take precedence over all other flags, subject to international practice. When displayed or flown with another flag, it must be in a position of honour. This means it should be positioned where practicable, either above all other flags or to the left of the other flags, as seen by a person facing the flags.

3. It may be reproduced in reduced size representations and displayed at all times, but it must be in its true form and colours, regardless of size.

How it cannot be used or treated
1. The flag cannot be used:
(a) in any trademark or for any commercial purpose;
(b) as a means, or for the purposes, of advertisement;
(c) as, or as part of, any furnishings, decoration, covering or receptacle;
(d) at any private funeral activity;
(e) incorporated or worn as part of any costume or attire; or
(f) on any private vehicle.

2. No person shall produce or display any flag which bears any graphics or word superimposed on the design of the flag.

3. The flag should be cleaned when dirty, and replaced if it has faded. After any washing, it should not be hung out to dry outdoors together with other laundry. Any worn out or damaged flag should be disposed properly, not left visible in dustbins. Torn or worn-out flags should be packed into a sealed black trash bag before being disposed.
