Portrait and Display Guidelines


Guidelines on Display of the Portraits

Guideline 1

The portrait of the President must be positioned on the left and the portrait of Ms Jane Ittogi on the right. Both portraits must be framed and hung as a pair, at the same height.

Guideline 2

If 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 top of the portraits. No other pictures, photographs, emblems or notices should be placed above or immediately beside the portraits. Display of the state crest with the portraits is permitted only for government organs, ministries and Singapore embassies overseas. For enquiries on the use of the state crest, please visit the National Heritage Board website.

Guideline 3

The measurement of the unframed portrait is 35.5cm by 49.3cm. A plain and simple frame should be used to frame the portraits.

Please refer to the measurements listed in the image above for the dimensions of the blue border that must be visible on the portrait when framed.

Guideline 4

Care should be taken in the choice of location to ensure that the portraits are accorded decorum. Appropriate places include public areas, for example, main lobbies (except for lift lobbies), reception counters and auditoriums. The portraits may also be displayed at public waiting areas of passport and permit offices, polyclinics, hospitals, financial institutions, military establishments, hotels, embassies, and country clubs, etc.

Guideline 5

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 and jackpot rooms, amusement centres, arcades, canteens, bars, pubs, beer and eating establishments.
