Google in Singapore
The Singapore flag is interred weaving between the word 'Google'. The crescent moon represents a young nation and the five stars stand for democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.

Singapore - My Home
In my doodle, My Singapore is all about the architecture, the national flower, food and tourist attractions such as the Singapore Flyer, Supreme Court, and Changi Airport and others. We should learn to appreciate the art of these things as they represent our country.
Age Group 13-16
David De Guzman, West Spring Secondary School
Singapore is well known for its peace and prosperity. The landmarks I have selected are well known to tourists and are meaningful to our culture. My doodle features Singapore's achievements. The Singapore Flyer which is the world's largest observation wheel. Singapore hosting the first ever "F1 Night Race". Singapore as the financial Centre with a thriving economy. Singapore Airlines, reliable way to fly, first to fly the A380 and a first class airport. A lot of shopping areas. A vibrant night life. An efficient public transport system. Finally, an international City. Singapore is continually building on for a richer Nation.

Colours of Singapore
On the surface level, the Google letters depict the various panoramic places of interests in Singapore. Several of the iconic tourist attractions featured by my illustration encompasses the Merlion, the Singapore Flyer, the Jurong Bird Park, the Esplanade and the Changi Airport. In a more abstract manner, several distinctive values of Singaporeans such as education, punctuality, racial harmony and total defence are also shown respectively by the depiction of the graduation cap, the MRT, the people holding hands together and the 5 jets parading in the air. Thus, I feel that my doodle has expressed the theme of “Our Singapore” effectively.
