Flag Days 

Flag Selling Hours

The flag selling hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the allocated flag days.  Flag selling on dates or at time other than that approved is not permitted.

Flag Days Application

The allocation of flag days is an annual exercise conducted by SWD upon the advice of the Lotteries Fund Advisory Committee (LFAC).  Invitation for application for flag days in the coming financial year will normally be advertised in newspapers and announced in SWD's website in April or May of each year and closed after a month.  Applicant organisations should meet the eligibility criteria.

In general, flag day applications are considered and endorsed by LFAC around September while applicant organisations will be informed around October of the results of  their applications.  Eligible applicant organisations will be invited to witness the lots-drawing, which determines their order of priority for selection of flag day.  Successful organisations will be invited to select their flag days around November according to their priority as determined by the lots-drawing.  Public Subscription Permit for holding a flag day will be issued to those successful organisations around December.

Public subscription permit for holding territory-wide / regional flag days in 2022-23 is issued on these conditions.
