Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia (Singa)

Singa Mascot

I have been thinking about if I should share this picture for this week’s photo challenge theme, Nostalgia, as only Singaporeans of my era could relate to it.  Anyway, here it is.

Singa the Lion was introduced to the public in 1982 as the official mascot for Singapore’s National Courtesy Campaign.  Singa (meaning “lion” in Malay) was depicted as a young cub to coincide with Singapore’s status as a young nation. The warm colours were also used to depict the friendliness and warmth of courteous living.  Every time I see Singa, I will start humming the song “Courtesy is for free, courtesy is for you and me” and looking at Singa will always put a smile on my face.
