Proclamation of Singapore

Happy National Day and SG50!

Happy National Day and SG50!Exactly 50 years ago, a radio announcer read the Proclamation that marked the birth of our nation. This morning, at National Day Observances, we remembered and celebrated that pivotal moment. We heard the Proclamation again, this time read by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew (in a recording done in 2012). We have come far in 50 years. While we enjoy today’s prosperity and progress, never forget how hard we worked to get here. What we have is special and precious, and must never be taken for granted. Today we sang Majulah Singapura proudly. To still do so in 50 years’ time, let us work together as one united people, regardless of race, language or religion, for the happiness, prosperity and progress of our nation. – LHL#SG50
