National Flag Ceremony on Monday

Categories: Art and Culture

In Indonesian schools, from elementary to senior high, a national flag ceremony is held every Monday morning.  It was meant to respect the deeds of national patriots who make Indonesia an independent country. In the ceremony, there is always a prayer session for the deceased patriots which called “mengheningkan cipta” or moment of silence. The ceremony is also an effort to educate the children of discipline since the students have to wear all uniform attributes and come earlier than usual.
