PRESIDENT HALIMAH YACOB LAUNCHES ISTANA SOUVENIR SERIES OFFICIAL FLORA & FAUNA MEDALLIONS TO COMMEMORATE ISTANA 150TH ANNIVERSARY

 Launch of the Istana Souvenir Series II - Flora and Fauna

“Spanning more than 40 hectares, the Istana grounds has always been a sanctuary for birds, horticulture and various other forms of wildlife. As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Istana, this second Souvenir Series pays tribute to the important role of the Istana in maintaining and promoting our rich biodiversity”.

- President Halimah Yacob

 

Originally a nutmeg plantation, the Istana is a verdant green lung in the bustling city centre of Singapore and a sanctuary for the conservation of the abundant flora and fauna that it is home to. Hence, this series celebrates Istana as a historical heritage site and a botany paradise with rich flora and fauna diversity on its 150th anniversary.
