Footnote taken from The Trouble With Malaysia, a Brian Yap essay from the book New Malaysian Essays 1
In 2000, a bunch of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia students, led by then Education Minister Hishammuddin Hussein, unrolled a 2km long flag.
Three years later, another group of students, this time from the Universiti Teknologi Mara, unrolled a 3.2km long flag.
Another group of students has probably unrolled a 5km long flag by now, but no one cared enough to notice.
