New red and white ribbon in memory of Lee Kuan Yew
The creators of the now famous icon of a black ribbon framing the profile silhouette of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew have come up with a red version.

SINGAPORE - Choa Chu Kang GRC MP Mr Alex Yam and team were credited as the brains behind the iconic black ribbon framing the profile silhouette of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

The creators have now come up with a red and white version of the ribbon, complete with five stars and a crescent at the end of it.

Mr Yam posted the new ribbon on his Facebook page and wrote: "It is only in our actions and not just our words that will show how much we cherish the legacy and inheritence given to us."

He added that he was impressed by the "Wonderful Singapore Spirit" in the past seven days and urged Singaporeans to pledge a "moment of service to others" and to "take responsibility for our communities, our homes and our nation."

Mr Yam has also posted a link for anyone who wish to download and use the "Red and White Ribbon PicBadge" on their profiles.

Last week many Singaporeans changed their social media profile pictures to the black ribbon in the memory of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. What was meant as a mobile message eventually got printed on car decals, badges, shirts and kites.

Singapore's founding prime minister died at the age of 91 on March 23 after being hospitalised since Feb 5 for severe pneumonia.
