Myths and legends of Singapore

September 18th, 2014 is glad to inform that Singapore Post has prepared for issuing a special set of commemorative stamps depicting the scenes from its famous myths and legends. The issue consists of eight stamps that are to be released on the 3d of October.

Singapore has more than its fair share of myths and legends, including the origin of Singapore's "Lion City" nickname, the tragic story of Radin Mas, and the inspiring tale of Badang that is related to the Singapore Stone. Many myths and legends of Singapore are shared with Malaysia. Many of these are taught and told to young school children at the age of 8 in class, so that these stories were not to die from over-Westernization.
