It is less than a week to Singapore's National Day, marking 52 years of independence.

On Wednesday, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen highlighted how the country is getting into the swing of things.

Posting on Facebook, he said Singapore's national symbols are being displayed across the Republic.

He posted pictures of a decked-out Housing Board block, a walkway in Toa Payoh, the Defence Ministry's Central Manpower Base and the lighthouse on Pedra Branca.

He wrote: "With National Day around the corner, streets, camps and homes across our nation are decked out with Singapore flags and banners in celebration of another birthday, including Pedra Branca! Majulah Singapura!"
