        Bearing the flag of your country was one of the highest honours through time immemorial, for men both on and off the battlefield. In Western world, up until 18th century,the soldiers assigned to this duty were given the rank ensign.

 

In year 2014, throughout the week of 12-16 May, I was honoured to bear the blue and yellow insignia (Latin for flag) of my country at the International Public Speaking Competition in London, the United Kingdom. Of course, while I did not actually carry the flag around, I had the distinct honour to be the official representative of my country.
