SCDF Marine Command HQ

About the logo:

CDMC’s insignia is represented by the sailfish and anchor. The sailfish is one of the fastest known water organisms in the world, while the anchor is a symbol of well grounded hope, and is often a seaman’s last resort in stormy weather to maintain stability on the rough sea. As the representative of the Life-Saving Force on the sea, the combination of the sailfish and anchor symbolizes CDMC’s inspiration to provide hope to distressed vessels at sea swiftly and effectively.

 

The SCDF logo in the middle of the insignia serves to show that CDMC is a unit under the command umbrella of SCDF. Being out at sea, the logo also serves to inform sea farers that bearers of this insignia belong to a Singapore government agency.


The CD logo on the top aligns CDMC with the aspirations of the larger Civil Defence international community as a profession.  It aims to realize SCDF's aspirations to achieve world class standards in providing fire fighting, rescue and emergency ambulance service.
The laurel represents the honour of service in the SCDF.
