Merlion

Merlion, Raffles place, Singapore

Merlion is a statue with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. It’s name comes from a portmanteau of mermaid and lion.

The merlion was designed by Fabrice Jiew for theSingapore Tourism Board in 1964 and was used as its logo up to 1997. The Merlion continues to be its trademark symbol. It also appears frequently in STB-approved souvenirs.
