The 31st of August might bring to mind many different things: a public holiday (yay to long weekend), buffet restaurants, midnight countdown and fireworks, the parade at Dataran Merdeka -- not forgetting the patriotic decorations in the days leading up to the celebration.
No matter what the momentous date evokes in you, we cannot help but to dream in colours, specifically red, yellow and blue.
That is why we have rounded up the brightest, Jalur-Gemilang-hued decors. While their places of origin are decidedly international, these bold-looking pieces prove that one can never go wrong with patriotic colours no matter where one is. What is more, they are chic.
