Limkokwing Sarawak designs largest Sarawak flag collage
FEELINGS of patriotism filled the air as the dedicated team members of Limkokwing Sarawak witnessed the unveiling of the ‘I Heart Sarawak Collage’ at Le’ Park in Kuching on Dec 14.
The collage was designed by Limkokwing Sarawak in a joint collaboration between Limkokwing Sarawak, the Ministry of Social Development and Hitz.fm Sarawak.
Comprising of Sarawak’s state colours and visuals of its symbolic icons, the collage was constructed to mark the 50 years of Sarawak’s independence in Malaysia and was symbolic of the youth, unity and leadership as it depicts the success achieved by the youths of Sarawak for the past 50 years.
About 50 staff and students took part in the launching ceremony of the collage which began with the singing of the national anthem by The Limkokwing Sarawak Choir followed by a rousing performance of two songs – ‘Kamek Teguh Kamek Bersatu’ and ‘IM4U’. Both songs are composed and produced by Limkokwing University of Creative Technology.
The crowd at Le’ Park were also treated to a fashion showcase by Limkokwing Sarawak’s Fashion and Apparel Design student Gladys Liew. A total of six creative designs were paraded by models whom are also students of Limkokwing Sarawak.
Prior to the launch, The Limkokwing Sarawak Dance Club entertained the audience with a special dance presentation accompanied by music from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis entitled ‘Can’t Hold Us’. The dance troupe made up of both students and lecturers were led by Lulu Law who is also a lecturer with the Faculty of Design and Innovation.
