On 9th August 2009, we celebrated Singapore 44th National Day. I didn’t manage to get any tickets (through e-balloting via NDP website) for the National Day Parade (NDP) and hence will have to watch the live telecast on TV. But I can still show you the decorations that the country put up during this period of celebration. The above photo is taken from my apartment window.
At Teck Ghee Community Centre.
Several flags placed together to form number “44″, which symbolize 44 years of independence. Thumbs up for the effort but the design……errmm
Decorations at Bishan Community Centre. There is even a stage setup nearby for the upcoming celebrations!
Flags displayed at the outside of HDB Bishan Branch Office.
Flag are displayed almost everywhere to lift the spirits of celebrating Singapore 44th National Day. This photo is taken at Bishan Bus Interchange.
Previously, I understand that Singapore national flag can only be displayed by individuals during the month of August but recently the regulations was relaxed. You can now display the flag during the National Day celebrations period (1 July— 30 September).
Singapore national flag can also be displayed on vehicles (both private and commercial) during the National Day celebrations period.
Shopping is a Singapore favorite national past time so many shops and outlets also do offer various discounts during National Day period, which more of them are 44%, in conjunction with Singapore 44th year of independence.
Celebrating the Singapore Spirit!

Next, the new NDP 2009 (National Day Parade) theme song is “What Do You See” by local rock band, Electrico.

Lastly, will leave you to enjoy the NDP 2009 fireworks! Happy 44th Birthday, Singapore!
