The theme “Our Singapore” commemorates our Singapore bicentennial and allows us to tell Our Singapore story from past to present. “Our” emphasises the collective ownership of Singapore. We are living the dreams of our pioneers, and we are now the pioneers of our future.
The logo features the lion and elements of the national flag.
The lion is symbolic of the name “Singapura”, first given by Sang Nila Utama 700 years ago.
The crescent moon and five stars, elements of our national flag, are embedded within the logo. 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of the Singapore flag, when it was first unveiled at the City Hall steps in 1959.
2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Sir Stamford Raffles’ arrival in Singapore in 1819. Our story, however, began more than 700 years ago, in 1299. It is a timely occasion for us to look back and reflect on what our past can tell us about ourselves today, and help us find out way in the future.
