Singapore celebrates its National Day on 9 August, to commemorate its independence from Malaysia in 1965. The event is marked by the National Day Parade (which includes the Singapore flag flying over the parade grounds, and a massive military march), as well as huge fireworks celebrations. During last year’s celebrations, the Marina Bay Sands was lit up in Singapore’s colors, red and white, as well as the crescent and five stars seen on the national flag.

Today marks Singapore’s 46th National Day. Happy National Day, Singapore!
