Happy 50th Independence Day!

Today is a very special day for us because Malaysia is celebrating 50th Independence Day! This is definitely a day to remember as Malaysia has been Independence for half a century. Today is public holiday, many people are going hometown, others are going to Dataran Merdeka to witness the marching while me, sitting in front of computer and writing this post.

This year National Day’s theme is “Malaysiaku Gemilang” (My Glorious Malaysia), and the logo is shown below. According to The Star survey, many people was still unaware of this year’s theme. To be honest, I also not informed by the new theme and logo until yesterday. This shows me how lack I’m reading the National section of newspapers.

The logo is using back the national flag’s 4 color, red and white waving Jalur Gemilang resembles the number 5, while the yellow crescent resembles 0 to form 50. While at the bottom of 5, a hibiscus flower (Malaysia’s national flower) is depicted. The whole logo is surrounded by a oval shaped dark blue color to achieve the harmonious design. While a handwriting like typeface to write out “Malaysiaku Gemilang”. Overall, the design is logic and I like it very much. It looks refreshing.

To get to know more about the current and the past National Day emblem and its rationals, please log on to this site. This is not going to be an easy weekend for me because I had to sketch out some logos for a new game… still doing research, hope I’m doing fine! Finally and once again, HAPPY 50th INDEPENDENCE DAY! šŸ˜€
