A funny little tale of cross cultural ignorance

A funny little tale of cross cultural ignorance

A funny little tale of cross cultural ignorance comes in the form of Vietnamese fishermen flying a Malaysian flag as a decoy while sailing in Malaysia’s northeastern waters  – they gave the game away by mistakenly flying it upside down.

This is an unusual mistake, because “Stripes of Glory” as the flag is known at home, carries a blue rectangle in its top left corner emblazoned with a yellow crescent and star, while red-and-white stripes alternate on the rest.
