South Beach celebrates National Day

South Beach celebrates National Day

In line with this year’s NDP theme, “Together, A Strong Singapore”, South Beach celebrates the nation’s 55th birthday with a dramatic display of red and white pinwheels across the whole South Beach development — drawing inspiration from windmills that harness energy, which also echoes South Beach’s value on Sustainability  

Windmills are often associate with the universal symbol of life, resilience, self-sufficiency, and perseverance in a harsh environment. Not only does a windmill survive a fierce storm, in fact, the stronger the wind, the more power it generates.

The pinwheel also is significant in the Chinese culture where it is often used as an instrument to turn obstacles into opportunities, and to bestow good luck, prosperity and longevity. This resonates deeply how we can turn an adversity into triumph amid the uncertainties the global pandemic has brought upon us.

Besides being Singapore’s national colours, red also represents our common blood and unity of purpose while white represents the traditional colour of uniforms worn by medical workers. Hence, this display is also our way of showing solidarity and gratitude for the frontliners.

It is important that we stay stronger and more resilient than ever, as One United People, because this too shall pass!

Mahjulah Singapura!
