MVFRA VISION - To Be The Leading Volunteer  Fire & Rescue Association in The Region


Flag of bottles to be ready by Aug 16

MALAYSIA’s biggest flag made up of used mineral water bottles is being constructed at the UE3 The Family Plaza in Jalan Loke Yew, Kuala Lumpur.

The project, which started on June 30, is being carried out by plaza workers and members of Federal Territory Fire and Rescue Volunteers Club (MVFRA).

When completed, the flag will measure 24m by 12m and would be hoisted at the concourse level of the plaza.

The plaza’s public relations executive, Usha Nair, said the flag was expected to be completed by Aug 16.

Usha is confident the deadline set to thread all 20,000 coloured mineral water bottles with wire could be met because their volunteer team had been beefed up with 75 students.

She said the Form Four and Form Five students from SM Taman Maluri, Kampung Pandan, would help out from 3pm to 6pm every day.

She added that the students were provided with lunch before they started working on cleaning the bottles, filling them with colour paper and arranging them in rows according to the colours.

Usha said they planned to enter the flag in the Malaysia Book of Records and later to the Guinness Book of Records.

“We were told that so far, no such attempt had been made.We are confident that we can enter the flag in the Guinness Book of Records,” she said.

She added that each volunteer would be presented with a certificate acknowledging their participation once the project was completed.

However, the completion of the flag would also depend on public effort to donate used mineral water bottles.

Usha said they would need another 5,000 mineral bottles.

“We need 1.5ml and 500ml bottles. The big bottles will be used to make the whole flag, while the smaller ones will be used to form the flag’s crescent and star,” she said.

The plaza has set up a corner at the concourse level, with a display of a miniature flag made of bottles, where the public can place their .
