NDP 2014 Funpacks to come in 6 different colour combinations

This year's National Day Parade "funpack" will come in the form of a backpack with six different colour combinations. 

You can also personalise it with special button badges designed by fellow Singaporeans. 

Our News Desk gets a sneak peek.

Besides the perennial favourites among parade goers, such as clappers, scarfs and discount booklet, this year's funpack will contain 5 button badges. 

They sport images that represent and celebrate the Singapore spirit. 

One of the five badges in each funpack is printed with a design by winner of last year's NDP graphic design contest. 

Lee Xin Li is one of the nine winners whose artwork was used. 

"I feature historical landmarks, this change, progression and transition in landscape from the past to present. Singapore has come a long way, through these badges I want to pay homage to the generation of Singaporeans who have put in the effort." 

Besides looking good, the badges have another function. 

Chairman of the Logistics and Finance Committee, Military Expert 6 Tan Boon Hong explains how the badges can encourage interactivity at the parade. 

"It allows the spectators to use these buttons to decorate and make every funpack unique. During the parade, we will encourage them to exchange people, family members and friends, others sitting around them, and have fun and interaction through this exchanging of buttons." 

The funpack also contains other items which encourage interactivity.

They include an LED light bracelet that will blink to the tempo of the music it detects. 

There's also a visor hat, light sticks and colourful glow sticks which spectators can wear on their hands. 

These items were designed by 15 students from the ITE College Central's School of Design and Media.
