MIRI: People in Miri City, which will host the Sarawak-level National Day celebrations on Aug 31, must show their patriotic spirit.

Miri mayor Adam Yii said the Miri City Council urged all the premises in the city to proudly display the Sarawak and Malaysia flags.

“Miri has been chosen by the state government to host the August 31 National Day state-level celebrations. We, in the city council, have urged all the people to prominently fly the state and national flags at their premises.

“The community will hold a high tea reception on Aug 31 at Pullman Hotel Miri to celebrate the occasion. Governor Tun Taib Mahmud and Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg will attend so will all the state ministers and politicians,” he said.
