PETALING JAYA: The Jalur Gemilang will soon fly high at schools, offices and homes as the National Day celebrations fast approach.
Star Media Group is inviting Malaysians to show their pride for their nation with the Raise The Flag campaign, which will kick off with a special four-page wrap on July 24 containing the Jalur Gemilang.
Readers can cut out the niftily-designed flag and assemble this for display as we count down the days to the nation’s milestone celebration.
Look out also for T-shirt templates in the centrespread of the newspaper.
Let your creative juices flow and design a Malaysian-inspired motif on your T-shirt, cut it out, “wear” it, then snap lots of photos while waving your Jalur Gemilang.
Take a series of selfies or better yet, gather friends and family and sit down for a fun craft session, followed by an even more fun photoshoot.
Hashtag your best poses as #RaiseTheFlagMY on social media.
Students can flood their classroom walls with the Jalur Gemilang and send in photos of their smiling selves and their teachers “wearing” their gaily-decorated T-shirts against the sea of flags.
Prizes await the best efforts and you may just see yourselves published in print and online!
The flag and T-shirt templates will be published together off and on throughout the two-month campaign that seeks to unite Malaysians in the spirit of patriotism and togetherness while fostering optimism, racial harmony and hope for the future of the country.
Also parked under the campaign is the Ride For Malaysia event, with Sunsuria Bhd. Aimed at promoting national unity via cycling, it will be held on July 30, at the SunSuria City Celebration Centre in Sepang.
