S’pore pays tribute to Philippine national hero Dr Jose Rizal

SINGAPORE: In an affirmation of the strong ties between Singapore and the Philippines, President S R Nathan unveiled a heritage marker dedicated to Dr Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines on Thursday, which marked his 147th birthday.

Dr Rizal advocated reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial period.

The marker, at the Asian Civilisations Museum, is part of the National Heritage Board’s (NHB) Friends to Our Shores series of historic markers.

They commemorate visits by eminent personalities by indicating the sites which were visited by them.

The initiative is also aimed at increasing Singaporeans’ understanding of history and how they are intricately linked to the region.

Dr Rizal visited Singapore five times. His first was in 1882.
