A colouring mistake on this resort map just caused a full-fledged military operation

Funtasy Island blue mapFuntasy IslandThere’s too much blue on this map.

See how this map is totally blue?

That’s a big time screw-up.

The map makes it look like Funtasy Island, a new eco-resort, is part of Singapore.

Funtasy Island is actually part of Indonesia.

When the developers behind the new resort put this map on their website, Indonesian officials got so mad they sent the Indonesian military to the island.

The military’s mission: find the highest point on the island and stick the country’s flag in the ground. The leader of Indonesia’s parliament told a local new outlet that “Our sovereignty must be upheld.”

The mission was a success.

This is what the map looks like now on Funtasy Island’s website:
