According to a notification the flag should be flown on all public and private buildings throughout the country on Pakistan Day (March 23), Independence Day (August 14), Quaid-e-Azam birthday (December 25) and such other days as notified by the government.

The national flag should be flown on all working days on the government buildings, it says.

Only the President, Prime Minister, Chairman Senate, Speaker of National and Provincial Assemblies, Chief Justice of Pakistan, Governors and Chief Ministers of the provinces, Federal Ministers and Ministers of State, Chief Election Commissioner and Provincial Ministers are entitled to fly the flag on their motor cars, vessels and aeroplane when they themselves are seated in, the notification said.

It said that no other flag or colour should be flown above the Pakistan flag and in procession the flag shall be carried at the centre or at the right of the procession in the line of march.

If there are two flags or colours the Pakistan flag should be flown at the right. In case the number of flags is more then two and odd, Pakistan flag should be placed in the centre and if the number of flags is even it should be flown the first to the right of the centre, it added. The spokesman said that it was observed that non-standard flags were being used by the public and private sector in different sizes, colours, designs and shapes, and the instructions on flying of national flag were also not being adhered to.—APP
