The head of state is the president, who is directly elected for 6 years. He appoints the majority leader in parliament as prime minister and appoints the ministers on his proposal. The cabinet is responsible to parliament. The legislature lies with the unicameral parliament, whose 89 members are elected for 5 years. Voting is compulsory for all citizens over the age of 21. The presidency council (21 members) ensures that the rights of ethnic and religious groups are respected. Check petwithsupplies to see Practical Information About Singapore.
The national flag was adopted on June 3, 1959. It is horizontally striped red over white with the white crescent moon and the five stars of the coat of arms in the upper corner. The flag colors are traditional Malay colors.
The coat of arms was adopted by parliament on November 11, 1959. In the red shield in silver it shows a rising crescent moon and five stars, which, according to official interpretation, symbolize democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality. The crescent moon commemorates Islam and the rise of the state. Heraldic shield holders are a lion on the right and a Malay tiger on the left. The lion is said to be a reminder of the city of Singapore, the tiger of the connection to Malaysia. The tape at the foot of the coat of arms contains the title of the national anthem »Majulah Singapura« (Forward, Singapore).
