Indonesian Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi also expressed dismay, posting pictures of the mistake on his Twitter account.

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo demanded an apology for hurt national pride but also cautioned against exaggerating the incident with his neighbour.

Indonesia's flag has a red stripe above a white stripe, but it was printed with the white stripe on top, making it look like the flag of Poland.

Khairy is hoping that both the Indonesian public and government will accept the apology and that the two countries will be able to continue their good relations.

At least 33 local websites have been hacked and defaced by Indonesian hacker group KidsZonk, who are ostensibly unhappy by the flag blunder in the official souvenir booklet of the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games 2017.

INDONESIAN hackers allegedly attacked several Malaysian websites, following the flag fiasco in a guidebook produced for the 29th Sea Games, reports the BBC today.
