The massive flag of Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) in Kulhudhuffushi island in Haa Dhaal Atoll has been lowered to half-mast.
An official of MDP in the island reported to RaajjeMV that Police had ordered to lower the flag before midnight on Monday. The official added they had complied as ordered and lowered it to 20 feet.
Police had ordered to lower the flag just prior to President Abdullah Yameen’s planned visit to the island.
Official added lowering the flag was saddening but did not wish to show any opposition or dissent during President Yameen’s visit to the island.
As per regulations, no flag can be raised higher than the national flag.
The flag was raised in the island last year during Eid celebrations.
