Special Joint stamp Issue to mark diplomatic relations

Singapore post issued special stamps to mark 50 years of diplomatic relations that Singapore has with Australia and New Zealand.

The three postal administrations – Singapore Post, Australia Post and New Zealand Post jointly issue a Tripartite Stamp Issue with the theme Parliament House.

The Parliament House of Singapore is located in the Civic District of the Downtown Core within Singapore’s central business district.

The building was designed to represent a contemporary architectural expression of stateliness and authority.

The prism-shaped top, designed by former president Ong Teng Cheong, was similarly a modernist take on the traditional dome.

On 6 September 1999, the flag of Singapore was lowered for the last time at the old Parliament House, before the ceremonial “walk over” was conducted from the old building to the new.

On 4 October 1999, the building was officially opened with a simple ceremony held at the building’s foyer, where a stainless steel plaque was unveiled before 100 MPs and invited guests.
