Singapore is made up of only one main island. It has 63 other miniature islands, a large percentage of which are uninhabited.
It is amongst the world’s 20 smallest countries and its total land-mass is only 682.7 square kilometers. The U.S is around 15,000 times larger.
The half-lion, half-fish beast, the Merlion is a befitting symbol for this fascinating city. The lion “Singa” is a representation of an animal that was seen by a Sumatran prince. The fish is a symbol of tribute to the ancient sea town “Temasek” that Singapore used to be known as.
