The Enduring Spirit of FreedomThe first stamp in this unique collection portrays the symbolic gesture of "Merdeka!" by the man that every Malaysian, young or old, affectionately refers to as "Bapa Kemerdekaan", the Father of Independence. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al Haj was the first Prime Minister of Malaysia and was responsible for leading delegation after delegation to London seeking the nation's independence.
Forging a United Nation
In 1961, Tunku Abdul Rahman proposed the idea of forming "The Federation of Malaysia", to consist of the Federation of Malaya, together with Sabah, Sarawak, Singapore and Brunei, all of which were at one time British Crown Colonies. On 16 September 1963 The Federation of Malaysia was formed, including Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore, with Brunei deciding against it. Singapore also later withdrew, seeking its own independence. Nevertheless, Sabah and Sarawak have remained as integral parts of Malaysia till today and have been valuable contributers to the nation's economy and growth for the past five decades. That is exactly why the two largest states in Malaysia are captured on our second stamp as the final piece
in the jigsaw of an independent Malaysia.
