17 Photos Celebrating Indonesia's 70th Year Of Independence - Hari Kemerdekaan 2015

Last Monday, the 17th of August, marked Indonesia's 70th Independence Day anniversary, as residents across the country decorated their neighborhoods with various kinds of red-and-white paraphernalia and geared up for traditional games and activities.

Aside from hoisting the national flag at every house for the festive day, residents in densely populated areas put up banners, umbul-umbul (decorative flags) and strings of plastic cups painted red and white over the roads.
