Researching Singapore

This is my research on Singapore. I hope you like it.

Singapore is competing in the 2012 Olympic Games.

The country's name is called republic of Singapore. Singapore is the capital. It’s location is an island in the heart of southeast Asia, between Malaysia and Indonesia.

Singapore’s climate (weather) is tropical. It’s hot and sunny all year, with two monsoon seasons (december to march and june to september) bringing heavy rains.

Statistics show in 2011 the population in Singapore was 5,183,700.

Singapore have four official languages, these are Malay, Mandarin, Tamil and English. The national language she’ll be the Malay language and she'll be in the Roman script.

It has a total land area of 710.3 sq km, with one main island and 63 offshore islands. The larger offshore islands are Pulau Tekong, Pulau Ubin and Sentosa.

In comparison (comparing together), New York City (786 sq km) is slightly larger than Singapore and Tokyo (2,187 sq km) is three times bigger.

The National Flag, Singapore’s most visible symbol statehood, reflects the ideals, beliefs and values that they stand by as a nation.

It consists of two equal horizontal sections, of red above white.  The upper left section contains a white crescent moon, and five white stars which form a circle.  Each feature of the Flag has its own distinctive meaning and significance.  Red symbolises universal brotherhood and the equality of man, while the white signifies everlasting purity and virtue.  The crescent moon represents a rising young nationa.  The five stars stand for the nation’s ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.
