In remembrance. The Malaysian athletes, officials and those present observing a minute's silence during the flag raising ceremony at the Commonwealth Games athletes' village in Glasgow on Tuesday.
GLASGOW: A minute’s silence was observed during the flag-raising ceremony to welcome the Malaysian contingent to the 20th edition of the Commonwealth Games at the athletes’ village on Tuesday.
Amidst a lively performance by the National Youth Theatre dancers to greet the arrival of guests from Cyprus, Mozambique, Niue and Malaysia – the mood turned sombre when the announcement was made to observe a minute’s silence in remembrance of the victims of the downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17.
The Jalur Gemilang was raised at half-mast while the national anthem was played during the hour-long ceremony, which was also attended by Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and Malaysian chef de mission Datuk Ong Poh Eng.
The athletes and officials were later treated to Scottish hospitality and a traditional Glasgow welcome.
