JOHOR BARU: Two sisters are continuing their late father’s business of over three decades to produce the Jalur Gemilang.

Annie Chia, 37, and her sister Christine, 41, said they hoped Malaysians would continue keeping the Merdeka spirit alive by flying the Jalur Gemilang at their homes to mark National Day.

Starting from a home-based business some 37 years ago, the business founded by their late father, Chia Thea Choong, produces about 100,000 flags annually.

They said more than half the flags produced were sold during the Merdeka month.

The sisters said many people were still buying the Jalur Gemilang to display it at their offices and homes.

They said schoolchildren visited the factory in Johor Jaya to see how the national flag was made.
