Merdeka!

Radiant and glorious. A little tattered around the edges but otherwise good. Happy 56th Independence Day, Malaysia.

Standing at about 95 meters (311 feet) tall, the giant flag is a little tricky to photograph from the ground. To appreciate its sheer size, look at the birdcage at the tip of the mast. It can hold several maintenance workers. It takes quite a bit of wind to lift it and when it does, it flutters with a graceful slow-motion effect. A beautiful sight in the morning sun.
