“Stronger Together, Majulah!” – A celebration of the National Day of Singapore

“For us, the National Day of Singapore is a time to reflect on the past and celebrate the present and our future,” say Ariel Tan and Vesshnu Sutharsan, Analysts. In this update, they share their experience of the day and, together with the team from our office in Singapore, wish all colleagues and clients a joyous National Day of Singapore! 

Many of us look forward to Singapore’s National Day Parade 

“Being a relatively young nation that gained independence on 9 August 1965, National Day is celebrated on a grand level in Singapore,” says Ariel, “and the National Day Parade is the most anticipated event as it is when we come together to celebrate the nation’s milestones and achievements, while also looking forward to the future.” 

“After the Prime Minister of Singapore delivers the National Day message, the parade begins: a diverse range of individuals create a colorful celebration of the nation and showcase the milestones and multicultural nature of Singapore. Students, private sector representatives, artistic directors, creative individuals, civil servants, and the military take part in impressive displays and creative performances from different cultures and genres.” 

“It is a wonderful event and, this year, it is being held at the iconic floating platform by the Marina Bay, as well as being shared throughout the heartlands in local performances and displays so that everyone has an opportunity to be included.”  

  

“Stronger Together, Majulah!” is the theme for this year’s National Day of Singapore  

“There is a new theme for our National Day celebration each year,” says Vesshnu. “2022’s theme “Stronger Together, Majulah!” calls on us all to strive towards a better future as a united and strong community. For me, it is an important reminder that unity in diversity makes all of us stronger, and this is especially true for a multiracial and multicultural society like Singapore. ‘Majulah’ (‘onward’) embodies our hopes and spirit since independence.” 

“Every year, to go with the new theme, a new National Day theme song is composed by local artists to nurture a love for music and singing, discover and promote home-grown music and artists, and to cultivate a greater sense of togetherness amongst us. It is also an opportunity to think about the past as we listen to popular songs from previous years.” 

This year, we will celebrate National Day of Singapore with our friends and family  

“National Day of Singapore means different things to many people,” says Ariel. “For some, it’s an opportunity to celebrate our nation with pride. While some people take an active role in the parade or other celebrations, others use the day to spend time with friends and family, join in by wearing red/and or while clothes to recognize the colors of the Singapore national flag, or hang flags outside their homes in support of the nation’s celebration of independence.”
