Being a multi-racial society, Singapore is home to a collage of communities, cultures and religions, each accompanied by a rich heritage that dates far back. Beyond just co-existing with one another, there is also mutual respect and this can be seen in daily interactions, festive celebrations and botany.
The idea is to select distinctive icons and traits that are seen within a specific culture and fuse it together with flowers or plants associated with it. The intense overlapping of motifs seen on the banner showcases the eclectic mix of culture in Singapore. ‘SINGAPORE ETHNOBOTANY’, showcases the relationship between nature and culture in Singapore. Diversity doesn’t get any wider than in Singapore.
