Our Father, Our Country, Our Flag
It’s been nearly a year since the passing of our late founding father, Lee Kuan Yew. To commemorate his death anniversary, a group of youths came together and constructed a portrait of him.
The portrait was made out of common stationery — country flag erasers from our childhood.
4,877 of these erasers were used to create a portrait of Lee Kuan Yew:
Titled Our Father, Our Country, Our Flag, this portrait pays as a tribute to our late Prime Minister.
The youths behind the portrait of Lee Kuan Yew
Mr Raghrib Ken Hamid was the artist who envisioned this portrait of Lee Kuan Yew and with the help of 110 youths, the portrait materialised.
Here are some of the youths who were part of the enormous group who paid tribute to our first prime minister!
Some even expressed their enthusiasm on Instagram:
Special appearances came to pay their tribute to the late PM Lee
Apart from these youths, there were also a handful of notable individuals who showed up to help complete Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s portrait.
Eden Ang, one of the actors from Wah!Banana, came down to put some erasers in place!
Night Owl Cinematics girl Jazliyana showed up at the event as well.
Charlie, or better known as Wei Ming from the cast of Ah Boys to Men!
2007 Campus Superstar finalist Zi Jie with actor Aden!
Singapore’s very own Olsen twin, Hayley Woo made her way down to the event too.
Last but not least, Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s younger brother, Dr Lee Suan Yew stuck the last eraser in place for the portrait of his beloved brother.
Rest in Peace, Mr Lee Kuan Yew
In just two days’ time, it will be the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s death anniversary.
During the past year, Singapore has been growing stronger than before, continuing the legacy Mr Lee left behind.
For laying out such a strong foundation for our nation — be it in terms of economy, education, standard of living — we are all indebted to the man who gave his all to us.
