Organised by a local beverage company, Haos Ek? in collaboration with the Iskandar Puteri City Council (MBIP), the formation is part of an effort to encourage public participation, especially among the young generation to instil a sense of strong patriotism in them.

Besides cherishing the nation’s Independence Day, the effort was also to reintroduce Sireh Park as a recreational and family leisure area.
