Written in 1966 by S Rajaratnam shortly after Singapore’s independence, the National Pledge is the embodiment of how peoples of different religions, races and language are bonded together by their common love for the country. Using images of stamps from various eras of Singapore history, this children’s book not only promotes nationalism, but a fervent regard for history and development through philatelic representations of the island-nation’s key events and achievements.
This edition is in Chinese.
