The Rising Moon is an artistic reinterpretation of our national symbols - the five stars and crescent moon, the artwork is a reflection of the notion of nationhood and our timeless core values. It is also a tribute to the history and cultural memories that the river has played in Singapore’s progress as a maritime nation.
