How local celebrities flew their flags and showed their love on National Day
Christopher Lee, Fann Wong, Suthasini, Romeo Tan, Taufik Batisah, Yvonne Lim and many more took to social media to commemorate the occasion with National Day posts.
Singaporeans celebrated our 55th National Day on Aug 9 by turning out to watch the mobile column go by, tuning in to watch the parade proceedings on TV and, of course, turning up the "I heart SG" posts on social media.
Needless to say, local celebs got in on the action, too. For some, it was a work day as they had National Day Parade hosting duties to perform. Others spent the day on set, because the show must always go on. Some chose to commemorate the occasion by affirming their love for the country. And some had two-in-one celebrations, like Fann Wong and Christopher Lee, who had a little party for their son, Zed, born on National Day six years ago.
But all wanted to wish their country well. Here's how our celebs shared their National Day love.
