Why are festive banners so expensive?

I WOULD like to raise an issue on the price of the annual festive banners on sale recently.

A piece of an almost transparent banner cost BND25 this year. It is compulsory to put up the banners for all businesses while the cost varies each year.

Unlike our national flag, the banners are only used once for less than 30 days.

Are the sales agents taking advantage of the situation to reap profit? Do the relevant government agencies approve of these charges and can they justify the cost?
