SINGAPORE — A man who hung a Palestinian flag over the parapet of a Housing and Development Board block at Sims Drive yesterday took it down after he was advised by the police.

…..

Under the National Emblems (Control of Display) Act, it is an offence for any person to display in public a national emblem, which includes a flag of any state other than Singapore.

The Act makes exceptions for diplomatic or consular representatives. A person convicted of the offence can be fined up to S$500 or jailed up to six months or both.
