Raise Buddhist Flag Campaign 2020

Wesak Day will be celebrated on 7 May 2020 in Malaysia and some other countries. While we are at the midst of a challenging time due to the Covid-19 pandemic, let us continue to maintain the spirit of Wesak which commemorates the Birth, Enlightenment and the Parinibbana of the Buddha.

Do raise the Buddhist Flag at your house if you have one and/or change your Facebook profile picture frame with a Buddhist Flag. The Buddhist flag is a symbol of faith, peace and unity of the Buddhists.

Let the Buddhist Flag flying high. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
