Local Information


The National Flower

The Origin
The Vanda Miss Joaquim, an orchid variety, is Singapore's national flower. It is an indigenous hybrid between the Vanda teres and the Vanda hookerana and was first discovered in the garden of Miss Agnes Joaquim in 1893. It was registered within the same year.

On 15 April 1981, following an announcement by then Minister of Culture S. Dhanabalan, the Vanda Miss Joaquim was proclaimed the national flower of Singapore. The selection of a national flower was part of our overall effort at fostering national pride and a sense of identity.

Its Meaning
Vanda Miss Joaquim was chosen as Singapore's national flower from among 40 other contenders, including some 30 orchids. It was selected particularly because of its hardy and resilient qualities and its ability to bloom throughout the year. These are characteristics which reflect Singapore's quest for progress and excellence in all aspects of life.
