On day one of the ASEAN summit, a goof-up by the organisers saw the Indian tri-colour being hoisted upside down.
The flag, hoisted on a stand alongside that of Japan, was in the background of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s customary handshake at the Summit.
The Ministry of External Affairs is yet to react to the incident.
Prime Minister Modi is on a three-day visit to Malaysia where he will address two summit gatherings as well as a meeting with the Indian diaspora on Sunday.
