The Merlion's body symbolises Singapore's humble beginnings as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which comes from the same root as the word tasek ('lake' in Malay). Its head represents Singapore's original name, Singapura, or 'lion city' in Malay.
The story says that the prince SungNila Utawa saw a lion on arrival to the shores of the luscious island some 700 years ago and therefore called it Singah.
The Merlion is now the symbol of Singapore.
