KUALA LUMPUR: The theme for both National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations this year will follow the concept of Keluarga Malaysia Teguh Bersama, while its logo will represent infrastructural development, communication systems and the expansion of digitalisation efforts for the benefit of Malaysians.
In a ceremony at Angkasapuri here on Friday (July 1), Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said this was in line with the Keluarga Malaysia concept introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, with Teguh Bersama symbolising the strength and togetherness achievable through collective efforts by Malaysians.
“The logo and themes this year must not remain as just display materials, but instead be understood by Malaysians and bring value to them.
“As such, the launch is held earlier this year so that it can be understood and instilled among members of Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian Family),” said Annuar during his speech.
He added that there were also various programmes and contests arranged to instil patriotism among Malaysians which will take place from July 30 until Sept 16.
“Among the programmes would be Kembara Keluarga Malaysia 2022 (KKM2022) where the Jalur Gemilang will be brought around the country following a baton exchange concept.
“This will begin on July 30 in Putrajaya and ends on Aug 31 at Dataran Merdeka for the National Day celebrations.
“We also hope for participation among all Malaysians for National Day celebrations this year with greater involvement among communities and families,” he said.
Also present at the event was Communications and Multimedia Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Mohammad Mentek.
