SCDF Crest

SCDF crest-full colour

The international Civil Defence triangle features prominently in the crest. The equilateral blue triangle symbolises the three main areas of Civil Defence - fire safety, first aid, and rescue and evacuation.


Our state shield is set on the triangle, which is garlanded by a laurel of leaves, signifying the formal status of the SCDF as a national organisation.


The green laurel, with a red ribbon, represents the honour of service in the Civil Defence. These are supported by a blue banner with the white inscriptions "Civil Defence Singapore". Blue, the colour of the SCDF, stands for loyalty and dedication to the nation and citizens.
