LANDMARKS AND MONUMENTS

Singapore stamps have featured landmarks and monuments many times.  While some landmarks and monuments have graced Singapore for a long time, others are relatively recent.

Examine these two stamps of the Singapore skyline.  The Fullerton Building (right) and Clifford Pier (centre) are old landmarks while the towering skyscrapers are recent ones.

Other landmarks and monuments, old and new, which have been featured on stamps are shown in the following pages.

Hopefully, an awareness of these ‘landmark’ stamps will help to develop a greater appreciation of Singapore’s rich heritage and fascinating landmarks.

  1. A very informative and interesting blog that seems to have revived my sporadic interest in stamp collecting.I love stamps for their beautiful design as well as significance.

  2. Roger, thank you for your kind comments. I didn’t know that you have an interest in collecting stamps too. Since you travel quite often, your collection of stamps must be quite varied.
