Singapore Flag

The Singapore flag is the most visible symbol of the country’s statehood and was first conceived and created the committee headed by Dr Toh Chin Chye, who was then the Deputy Prime Minister. Together with the State Crest and the National Anthem, it was unveiled on 3 Dec 1959, at the installation of the new Yang di-Pertuan Negara (Head of State), Encik Yusof bin Ishak at the City Hall. Upon the country’s independence in 1965, it was adopted as the National Flag.

The Singapore Flag consists of two horizontal halves, red above white. Each element in the Flag carries a meaning:

Red: universal brotherhood and equality of man.
White: everlasting purity and virtue.
Crescent moon: the young nation of Singapore on the rise.
Five stars in a circle: the country’s ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.
