Skywatch: Asia-Africa Flag Poles

These are the flag poles in front of Gedung Merdeka or the Museum of Asian-African Conference.

As some of you may already know, Gedung Merdeka or the Merdeka Building was the venue for the Asian-African or Bandung Conference in 1955.

29 countries attended the original conference. 109 countries attended the golden jubillee in 2005. Consequently there are more flag poles now than there were in 1955. Here is what the building looked like in 1955.
