Indian flag flown upside down at ASEAN meeting

INTERinsidIndia’s national flag was displayed in the background as Prime Minister Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe shook hands for the cameras on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit. Unfortunately the Indian flag was displayed upside down with the green band at the top and the saffron below.

Official resources in Kuala Lumpur said it was an unfortunate and inadvertent error.

PM Modi is on a 3 day visit to Malaysia for the ASEAN – India and East Asia Summits and to address the Indian diaspora the following day.
