The Singapore Bicentennial marks the 200th anniversary of Stamford Raffles’ arrival in Singapore, a key turning point in our history. But our story did not start in 1819. It started more than 700 years ago. 2019 is a time for commemoration and appreciation of the historical events, cast of contributors and communities that shaped our evolution. It is a reflection of our journey from Singapore to Singaporean.
The limited-edition scarves collection specially designed to mark Singapore’s Bicentennial, captures significant vignettes of the pre- and post- Raffles period. The pre-1819 scarf features Sang Nila Utama, multi-ethnic waterside settlements, ships of many nations, and silhouette of traders with different costumes from various exotic origins. In the post-1819 scarf the focus shifts to English gentry, equestrian scenes, carriages, landmark buildings, and the new, rationalised city plan: the Jackson Plan. Though the characters change, the setting retains its characteristic tropical flavour, with lush foliage.
