PUTRAJAYA, Aug 23 – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak today launched the 1Malaysia Negaraku (1Malaysia MyCountry) icon that combines the 1Malaysia concept and the Negaraku initiative, thus symbolising the consolidation of the message and platform to foster national unity. Launching the icon at Perdana Putra here in the presence of Cabinet ministers, he said the rebranding of the 1Malaysia icon was to avoid confusion among the people who had become familiar with the two concepts.
“Therefore, we agree to combine the two symbols into one national icon so that we do not discard the 1Malaysia concept and focus only on the Negaraku concept as though 1Malaysia does not exist anymore. We will continue to champion 1Malaysia. We have decided that this is the new icon for our nation, namely 1Malaysia Negaraku,” he said at the launch. — Bernama
