CITIZENS and residents of Brunei Darussalam are required to hoist the national flag in conjunction with His Majesty’s upcoming 69th birthday celebrations.

State broadcaster Radio Televisyen Brunei announced yesterday that all households, office buildings and commercial establishments should begin hoisting the national flag on August 1 until August 31.

Those with titles are expected to hoist their respective flags.

August 15 was declared as a special holiday to mark the monarch’s belated 69th birthday as July 15 fell on Ramadhan.

The belated celebration is expected to take place on the special holiday with a parade at the Taman Hj Sir Muda Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien followed by an investiture ceremony at Istana Nurul Iman.
