Singapore: Flag of Singapore

A happy (belated) New Year to everyone. This is my first Post in 2017 and it comes with a nice card from Singapore. It shows the national flag of the country. The national flag of Singapore was adopted in 1959, the year Singapore became self-governing within the British Empire. It was reconfirmed as the national flag when the republic gained independence on 9 August 1965. The five stars on the flag stand for democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.



Stamp:
Festivals (from a set of 8) - Issued: 19-10-2016


Many thanks again to Vivian for this card!
