A mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, the Merlion rose to its iconic status as a personification of Singapore in 1964.
The fish body of the Merlion represents the origin of Singapore as a fishing village, and the majestic lion head represents the original name of Singapore, Singapura, which means “Lion City” in Malay.
Besides being a tourism marketing icon of Singapore, the Merlion is also used to symbolize Singapore in art and popular culture nowadays.
