About 10% of the flats displayed the flag. All of them appear to be the effort of the individual owners, and not the organized work of the Resident Committees.
This is not bad, considering that I have read in the Internet that there were hardly any flags displayed this year in most parts of Singapore apart from those put up by the Resident Committees.
However, 10 to 20 years ago, the situation was quite different. I remembered that in most places, there were a much higher display of the Singapore flag. It was a matter of pride.
Clearly, the level of commitment to Singapore had declined during the past two decades. While the country had progressed, the people seemed to be have a harder life,with the high cost of living and high cost of flats.
This situation, and the level of unhappiness, have to be addressed.
