Jalur Gemilang Colours To Light Up Putrajaya Until 16 Sept

Decorative lighting at government and commercial buildings will be from 7 pm to midnight daily including at weekends and public holidays

KUALA LUMPUR – To enliven this year’s National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations, iconic landmarks, including bridges, at the federal government’s administrative centre in Putrajaya will be lit up in the colours of the Jalur Gemilang until 16 September.

According to Bernama, Putrajaya Corporation’s (PPj) Corporate Communications director Norzita Abdul Razak said in a statement that the “Pencahayaan Malam PPj” programme which began on 01 August is to brighten up the festive mood of both celebrations.

She said the decorative lighting at government and commercial buildings will be from 7 pm to midnight daily including weekends and public holidays.

“The facade lighting in Putrajaya involves three categories namely LED, warm white and interior lighting,” she said.

According to Norzita, LED lights with the Jalur Gemilang concept can be seen at the Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (K-KOMM), Zenith Hotel, Seri Wawasan Bridge, Seri Saujana Bridge, and fountain in Precinct 1.

Meanwhile, the warm white lighting on the facade of buildings involved government and commercial buildings and structures in Putrajaya, she said.

She said the interior lighting with the lantern concept involved the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque and Legal Affairs Division (BHEUU) building.

Norzita said PPj has begun hoisting 4,400 Jalur Gemilang on lamp posts, in public parks as well at PPj premises such as food courts, halls and libraries since 15 July.

She said a total of 11,200 Jalur Gemilang were distributed to six sub-zones of the Federal Territory of Putrajaya Residents Representative Council, 70 residents’ associations and 27 schools in Putrajaya last month.

On 30 July, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob launched the 2022 National Month and Fly the Jalur Gemilang programme by joining 15,000 Malaysian Families in a leisurely 2.7-kilometre ‘Berjalan Teguh Bersama’ programme in Putrajaya.

The National Day celebration on 31 Aug to be held physically at Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur has been much-awaited by the public after not being held on a large scale for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
