Bukit Batok East: Giant National Flag - 6 August 2011 Saturday
Bukit Batok East celebrated this year's National Day in a very different way. Besides the normal Observance Ceremony and Cultural Show for the residents, they have also invited all residents to pen down their wishes for the nation. All collected wishing cards are then put together to form a Giant National Flag and used as the Back Drop for the National Day Observance Ceremony.
The preparation for the Giant Flag started since early June, whereby residents who attended our community events are being invited to pen down their wishes and take a photo while holding a specially designed board with words such as 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY SINGAPORE' and 'LOVE SG' printed on them.
Two days before the Observance Ceremony, volunteers started to paste all 4200 pieces of wishing cards into 60 pieces of vanguard sheet. Then, on 6 August 2011, all these vanguard sheets are being put together on a giant board to form the giant National Flag.
