The Indonesian national motto of "Unity in Diversity" points to one of the greatest attractions of Indonesia.
There are around 300 ethnic groups, a result of Indonesia's unique geographical make-up consisting of more than 17,000 islands, and history.
Many Indonesians see themselves first by their ethnic, religion and cultural group, and secondly as Indonesians.
The glue that binds the people together is the usage of the Indonesian language and adoption of Pancasila as national philosophy which stressed the doctrine of Religious pluralism, Humanism, Unity, Democracy and Social Justice.
Considering the above mentioned facts, I felt that Indonesia could only exist as a country if its people keep on believing on what have been pledged by our founding fathers on 28 October 1928, as follow :
- We are one Nation : Indonesia
- We have one Language : Indonesia
- We have one Country : Indonesia
