Happy 50th Anniversary to a little red dot on the map

Proclamation of Singapore's Independence, August 9, 1965

Independence Day Fireworks, August 9, 2015

The official logo for the celebration is a red dot, a symbol of pride and defiance since the 1990s, when an Indonesian leader reportedly called Singapore "a little red dot" on the map. The image, with "SG50" in white characters, is ubiquitous, adorning banners, buses, cakes and a host of goods in shops.
