1 Singapore introduced well before 1 Malaysia ?


A Maximum Card on the theme "One People, One Nation, One Singapore"

"1 Malaysia" is a prevailing slogan carried everywhere throughout Malaysia - A truly harmonious spirit emphasized for all the major races in Malaysia promoted by the present Malaysian government led by the Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak. A set of stamps with the theme " 1 Malaysia" was issued on 31st August, 2009 to celebrate the country's independence day. Going through the Singapore Stamps, I am surprised to note Singpost issued a set of stamps " Fabric of the nation" in celebration of the country's 40th anniversary in 2007, one of the 40 stamps depicted a slogan " One people, One Nation, One Singapore" which is rather similar to the "1 Malaysia" slogan as widely promoted by the Malaysian Government in 2009. I further discovered an advertisement card issued to celebrate the National Day of Singapore in 2003 also carried the similar slogan " One people, One Nation, One Singapore", I find the stamp and the ad card match well with the theme, and Hence, I realised an MC on the theme " 1 Singapore ".  By looking at the MC, I will have to say that " 1 Singapore " existed before " 1 Malaysia ".
