National Day is over, but you can still see the national flag displayed in many areas around Singapore.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

The Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth said that Singaporeans are encouraged to display the flag from July 1 to September 30 as part of the celebrations.

But the flags should not be in the frayed condition like the ones Stomper Ho saw outside Lake Life condominium at Tao Ching Road near Jurong Lake Gardens.

Sharing photos of the flags facing Calvary Bible-Presbyterian Church, the Stomper said: "All the flags had faded to at least five different shades and the corners are torn."

One photo shows bird droppings between two of the five stars on the flag.

"Many just hang for the sake of hanging," said the Stomper. "Please give some thought before decorating."

Stomp has contacted Lake Life condo for more info.

According to National Heritage Board guidelines for the use of the national flag, it should be cleaned when dirty and replaced if faded or torn.
