The white stands for the people and economy of .'(extracted from Wikipedia)

i noticed that tak ramai yang kibarkan jalur gemilang sempena menyambut kemerdekaan ke 51. kalau dulu penuh satu kereta dihiaskan. tak pun sehelai bendera kecil setiap kereta. adakah ini menunjukkan tanda protes rakyat terhadap kenaikan harga barang? entha lah ye..

Selamat Menyambut Hari Kemerdekaan ke 51!
