KUCHING: The Kuching City North Commission (DBKU) has unveiled a landmark specially dedicated to mark the 50th anniversary of Sarawak’s independence in Malaysia.
Located at the Datuk Patinggi Abang Haji Abdillah roundabout near Wisma Bapa Malaysia here, the structure depicts a pair of hands holding up the 50th year logo, which is shaped to resemble the head of a hornbill. The hands signifies the undivided support from the people of various backgrounds in Sarawak, who are living in peace and harmony.
The round pillar which supports the hands symbolises the economic and political stability in the state.
The colour black, red and yellow on the logo represent those on the Sarawak flag.
The unveiling was performed by Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud last night, which saw the attendance of several Cabinet ministers and senior government officials.
Also present were Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu and Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh.
