The stamp set focuses on people from all walks of life who make up Singapore. The ‘red dot’ concept which inspired the SG50 logo is the key design element which flows through each of the stamps. It represents the Singapore spirit that lives in the things we do, and behind how we do them. The stamp set is a reflection of Singapore’s optimism and confidence for the future.

We remind ourselves of our culture, heritage and everything that makes us Singaporean, so that we embrace the future confidently and carry on shaping a better Singapore.

It is a time to celebrate what we have been through as a nation, the little things that make us Singaporean and our hopes and dreams for the future. Singaporeans can look forward to a variety of national and community programmes in the year-long celebrations. They are also invited to plan and organise their own activities, which could be supported by the SG50 Celebrations Fund. To guide and coordinate the plans for the 50th anniversary celebrations, a Singapore50 Steering Committee has been formed, comprising representatives from the public, private and people sectors.
