Darryl David on National Symbols Bill

07:38 Min

National symbols are "quintessential" to the Singapore identity, said MP Darryl David. Many Singaporeans and even foreigners have come to associate the national symbols as synonymous with Singapore and the Singapore brand, as well as what Singapore stands for, he said. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 13), he stressed the need for Singaporeans to know the history of the symbols and what they stand for. They should have contact with these symbols more freely and spontaneously in their everyday lives. Mr David also urged the Government to consider giving the public more flexibility in using the national symbols, as well as extending the period when the national flag can be flown.
