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!

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.
