Mr Lee's message will also mark the start of the morning show for the National Day Parade (NDP).

The parade will be split into morning and evening shows this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Under the theme "Together, A Stronger Singapore", this year's NDP calls on Singaporeans to stay united as one people and work together to emerge from challenges "stronger than before".

This year's logo consists of a heart to represent compassion, paired with a fist to signify conviction. The logo's red-to-purple gradient signifies "passion flowing into an inspiring future".
