Do you know? The theme for this year’s National Day Parade (NDP) is “#OneNationTogether”, a rallying call to unite all Singaporeans to stand together as one. 'One Nation' is to remind Singaporeans that regardless of origin and background, we belong as one people and one nation. ‘Together’ emphasises the importance of unity in times of uncertainty and represents a call-to-action for all Singaporeans to overcome the odds together.
For the first time in NDP, the hash symbol (#) has been incorporated into an NDP theme, #OneNationTogether, enabling Singaporeans to share the rally call through social media. The “#” serves as symbols of unity and home, and draws a close resemblance to the iconic image of four interlocking arms found in our nation’s first Orchid series $10 note launched in 1967. This also symbolizes our nation’s strength in social unity and multicultural harmony. “#” is also a familiar feature in Singaporean home addresses, and is synonymous with the idea of home.
On our nation's 52nd birthday, BW Monastery joins all Singaporeans to come together as One to wish our beautiful country a very prosperous and "Happy Birthday".
