Pandemic-safe National Day celebrations (UPDATED 14.05.2021)

Even in the age of the pandemic, big occasions like the National Day will be celebrated! But with the stricter COVID-19 regulations starting 16 May, the already reduced 17th of May program has been further reduced. The children's 17th of May celebration and the service at the Seamens' church are unfortunately cancelled. The NBAS business lunch is postponed.

The 17. Mai Singapore Facebook group will keep you updated on our photo/video competition and video greetings in the spirit of the 17th of May!

  • Photo and video competition with prizes from the Seamens’ Church
  • Digital celebration with flag hoisting and greetings from the Ambassador and Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja
  • Video greeting from the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Søreide


With the best wishes for a safe and joyful National Day Celebration,

Hipp Hipp Hurra from the 17th of May Committee (The Seamens’ Church in Singapore, Norwegian Cultural Center incl the Norwegian School in Singapore, NBAS, ANSA and the Norwegian Embassy).
