    - This year's parade Show takes its inspiration from the national flag.
    - The slogan ties in with how activities related to 2010's National Day will be framed along the lines of encouraging Singaporeans to articulate their dreams and to fly the flag.
    - Live Our Dreams, Fly Our Flag' inspires Singaporeans to be confident in painting a better picture for Singapore and encourages them to express their pride and love for the country.

  7. Majulah Singapura was played for the first time by the Singapore Chamber Ensemble as a concert piece to mark the reopening of the Victoria Theatre on 6 Sept 1958.

    The logo for 2010 NDP depicts the five stars of the Singapore flag in their original ensemble as seen on the flag. The shooting motion that accompanies the stars, meanwhile, resembles the movement of the crescent moon in the national flag. The use of brushstrokes gives it a light, elegant feel, and depicts a sense of flight, of aspirations and of hope.

    On 3 Dec 1959, the flag was unveiled together with the State Crest and the National Anthem during the installation of the new Head of State, Yang di-Pertuan Negara, at the City Hall steps.

  12. Findings:
    1)The anthem was composed by Zubir Said in 1958 before Singapore's Independence. Upon full independence in 1965, Majulah Singapura was formally adopted as Singapore's national anthem. Majulah Singapura translates into Onward Singapore.
    Reason: I find this interesting cause we have been singing the national anthem for so long already btu we don't really know the history behind it.

    2)The National Flag of Singapore is a symbol of statehood. It consists of two equal sized horizontal sections, with the upper section in red and the lower in white. At the top left canton is a white cresent moon next to a circle formation of five white stars. Each element of the flag has its own meaning and significance: red symbolises universal brotherhood and equality of man; white signifies pervading and everlasting purity and virtue; the crescent moon represents a young nation on the ascendant; and the five stars stand for the nation's ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.
    Reason: The national flag represents Singapore, we as Singaporeans should know the meaning of the Singapore flag.

    3)The logo depicts the five stars of the Singapore flag in their original ensemble as seen on the flag. The shooting motion that accompanies the stars, meanwhile, resembles the movement of the crescent moon in the national flag. The use of brushstrokes gives it a light, elegant feel, and depicts a sense of flight, of aspirations and of hope.
    Reason: We see the log this year so many times but we don't know how it came about.

  15. 1) There's a launch of the "NDP On The Go" application for the iPhone and Android. This application allows users to access the latest NDP news and share content with their family and friends through facebook or twitter anytime, anywhere.

    3) Some roads will be closed during the NDP for the performers and the President to pass by.

  21. 1. I found out that there is actually an app specially designed for this year's NDP. It is called 'NDP ONTHEGO'. It can be downloaded into your smartphone, and acts as a digital on-hand personal guide! It also doubles as an event locator! Whether it is the Parade at Padang, or the NDP roadshow, it can help give you directions from your current location to the place of event! Be it walking, by public transport or driving! It also has many other features!

    2. The second interesting thing I have found out is a variety of floats will be brought out to this year's NDP. Each float will represent one of the six ethnic groups in Singapore.

    3. The third interesting thing that I have found is the Padang took exactly two months to renovate, in order to prepare it for the NDP Parade. It started on April 19th and ended on June 19th, with the covering of the field and seating galleries done. And it took a few more weeks to install the support towers and the LED screen.
