This stamp depicts the map of South-East Asia. Singapore is depicted as a  small dot at the foot of Malay Peninusula. The southern half of Taiwan is accurately included on the top part of the design.

However, the artist has omitted the Hainan island in the design. This island is very much larger than Singapore and is located in the South China Sea, near the Gulf of Tonkin and the south of the Leizhou Peninsula.
