There are two astronomical problems with the Singapore flag. Near the equator, a young (waxing) Moon will not look like the crescent on the flag. It will look like the crescent on the coat of arms!
Recommended by ssf: "On why the Singapore flag's design is clearly an artistic, rather than an astronomically accurate, representation."

Along Murray Terrace, sandwiched amongst the eating outlets, is this charming shop where flags are made.
The symbol of every country. Put together in one small shop. The honour of the country. Produced and reproduced using paper templates.
Nice entry about a flag shop at Murray Terrace, with photos.

Elaine took this 'fairly' patriotic shot of a Singapore Flag hung outside an apartment. It shows one of the many uses of NTUC Fairprice plastic bags.
On closer look, notice that the flag has not only been nicely strung up, it has even been meticulously weighed down to prevent it from flapping in the wind...
And when you look even closer, the plastic bags holding the weights are NTUC. Not Cold Storage, Not Marketplace, Not Carrefour, But NTUC.
