Introduction

There are five polytechnics in Singapore providing post-secondary tertiary education to eligible students. Students are awarded diplomas upon successful completion of their courses in a polytechnic. These polytechnics are statutory boards in the Singapore civil service system with legislation for each polytechnic governing their establishment. The five polytechnics in Singapore are:

When flown on flagpoles, the flags of the polytechnics are placed second to the national flag of Singapore.

Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP)

Nanyang Polytechnic (established on 1 April 1992)

Nanyang Polytechnic's flag is the most complex amongst the local polytechnics in terms of design. Issuant from the lower hoist and base region towards the entire fly half of a white fielded flag are six rays/streamers/streaks of the colours orange, blue, green, red, yellow, and violet from left to right. Each ray/streamer/streak is made up of varying shades of a particular colour as well. The canton region of the flag is charged with the blue and red logo of the polytechnic based on a stylisation of their initials "NYP".

Republic Polytechnic (established on 1 August 2002)

The logo of Republic Polytechnic is based on a shield parted vertically green and black. The white curves are derived from the curved portions of the letters "R" and "P" when set side by side placed on the shield. The logo was launched on 9 December 2002. The symbolism of their logo is elaborated in full here: http://www.rp.sg/about/corp_profile/ourlogo.asp. It is uncertain if the flag was adopted concurrently or later. Republic Polytechnic's flag is predominantly white with the shield-logo at the centre. The canton edge has a green curve and the lower-fly edge of the flag has a black curve.

Singapore Polytechnic (SP)

Singapore Polytechnic (Singapore Polytechnic Ordinance passed on 27 October 1954)

The Singapore Polytechnic's Board of Governors adopted the polytechnic logo on 17 May 1960. It is uncertain if a flag was also concurrently adopted. The current flag is an equal horizontal bicolour of yellow over red, the predominant colours from their logo. The logo is a shield, with a yellow field charged with a red compass and a red half splinted wheel. The chief is red, the national colour of Singapore with a yellow lion passant guardant also representing Singapore. A motto scroll bears the Malay text, "Berkhidmat dengan keahlian" translated as "to serve with skill". For a detailed description and history of the logo, please see the following: http://www.sp.edu.sg/wps/portal/vp-spws/spws.org.abtsp.story.sptraditions.

Temasek Polytechnic (established on 6 April 1990)

The principal flag of Temasek Polytechnic, is an equal horizontal bicolour of red over white. The red half bears the logo of the polytechnic in white, while the lower white half bears the text "Temasek Polytechnic" in black, all capital letters, and in their adopted corporate font on two lines. There are other flags to represent each school as well of which details I am not certain at this point. The polytechnic logo was adopted on 27 June 1991. The logo is a stylised representation of a lion's face, an open book, a torch, a sword, and staircases all rolled into one on a red block. Details of logo is presented here: http://www.tp.edu.sg/home/about-old.htm.
