A Slice of History

Singapore earned its name in the 14th century when an Indonesian Prince, who was out on a hunting trip at this small island, caught sight of an animal he had never seen before! He founded a city where the animal had been spotted, naming it Singapura “The Lion City”, from the Sanskrit words “simha” (lion) and “pura” (city).

Modern Singapore was founded in the 1800s, thanks to Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles who led the British East India Company in creating the Port of Singapore trading post on the international spice route. The need for rubber and tin in the industrializing West eventually made Singapore one of the largest and busiest ports in the world.

Now Singapore is ranked as the top maritime capital of the world. Currently the world’s second-busiest port in terms of total shipping tonnage, it also transships 20% of the world’s shipping containers and 50% of the world’s annual supply of crude oil.
