Dr Tan Cheng Bock took to Facebook today to announce that the party symbol for the Progress Singapore Party has been approved. He said that his Party symbol is in the form of a palm tree signifying growth, purpose, strength and life.

“The tree has 5 fronds and the trunk is in the shape of a person. The person-shaped trunk represents the Party’s belief that people are its core interest and source of strength.

“The 5 fronds represent the 5 ideals which the Party subscribes to: Democracy, Equality, Justice, Peace & Progress. They also represent our multi-racial and inclusive society consisting of the 4 racial groups and new citizens.”

Dr Tan further announced that Progress Singapore Party’s colours are red and white. He explained that while red symbolises ‘life, passion, energy and strength’, the colour white symbolised ‘purity, integrity and goodness’.

Dr Tan previously said that at his age, he had a short time left to effect much needed change in Singapore, and that he wants to see “a compassionate and truly democratic Singapore where good values and people matter.”

In adding, “freedom of choice and free speech without fear must be defended,” he said, “in due course, as the party and candidates mature, we intend to be ready to govern the nation. In the mean time, we will work with those who share our political beliefs of country first – before either party or self.”

The Progress Singapore Party said that it looks forward to serving the people of Singapore and will work hard to fulfil the ideals to which they subscribe.
