Children and residents of Sri Perlis 2 PPR flats celebrating with the Jalur Gemilang during the Pocket Show 2014 programme.
RESIDENTS of Sri Perlis 2 PPR flats displayed their patriotic spirit during the Pocket Show Programme 2014.
Children on bicycles were unperturbed by the rain while some residents waving the Jalur Gemilang made a beeline for the convoy.
The programme organised by the Federal Territories Information Department in conjunction with the 57th Merdeka Day celebration was aimed at instilling the spirit of patriotism among Malaysians.
The convoy consisted of Federal Territories Information Department, Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK), traffic police unit, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Road Safety Department, Road Transport Department, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur Special Affairs Department as well as National Anti-Drugs Agency.
DBKL deputy director-general (project implementation and maintenance) Datuk Mohd Najib Mohd said unity should be inculcated in all Malaysians.
“With the convoy waving the Jalur Gemilang during the programme, let us remind ourselves of the efforts and sacrifices of our forefathers so the younger generation could have a better future.
“Unity should be nurtured among all Malaysians, especially the young,” he said.
Residents, non-governmental organisations and active associations received the Jalur Gemilang distributed by Najib and his delegates.
Locations such as Brickfields, KL Sentral, Sogo shopping complex and Putrajaya were selected for the two-day programme where the national flag was distributed to the public by 105 volunteers from the 1Malaysia Club and the Federal Territories Information Department staff.
A flash mob and buskers also performed during the programme.
