Guidelines & directives on display of the portraits
When facing the portraits, the portrait of the President must be positioned on the left and the portrait of Mrs Tan, on the right.
Both portraits must be framed, hung as a pair and at the same height.
If the symbol of the state crest is to be displayed with these portraits, it should be placed between the two portraits, with its top in line with the tops of the frames of the portraits. (Note: Permission for the display of the state crest is given only to governmental organs, ministries and statutory boards, as well as Singapore embassies located abroad. For enquiries on the use of the state crest, please contact the National Heritage Board at e-mail: nhb_nationalsymbols@nhb.gov.sg)
As a mark of respect, no other pictures, photographs, emblems or notices should be placed above or immediately beside the portraits.
The distances between the two portraits or the state crest and the portraits are not subjected to any specifications.
In choosing a suitable site to display the portraits, care should be taken to ensure that the portraits are accorded decorum.  Appropriate places include areas where the public normally visits and where official business is conducted, for example, the main lobbies (except for lift lobbies), reception counters and general offices. They can be displayed at public waiting areas of passport and permit offices, polyclinics, hospitals, banks, military establishments, hotels, embassies, country clubs etc. Other places include areas where the public and/or staff assemble for official business, such as auditoriums, conference rooms and meeting rooms.
The portraits should not be displayed at places where games and entertainment take place or where food and drinks are served, for example, karaoke lounges, games room, jackpot rooms, amusement centres, arcades, canteens, bars, pubs, beer and dining halls.
