William Farquhar (1774 1839) was a Scottish colonial administrator employed by the East India Company, who served as the sixth Resident of Malacca between 1813 and 1818, and the first Resident of Singapore between 1819 and 1823.

The William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings consists of 477 watercolour drawings of plants and animals of Malacca and Singapore by unknown Chinese (probably Cantonese) artists that were commissioned between 1819 and 1823 by William Farquhar. The paintings were meant to be of scientific value with very detailed drawings, except for those of the birds which have text going beyond their original purpose. For each drawing, the scientific and/or common name of the specimen in Malay, and, occasionally, in English, was written in pencil.

On February 20, 2002, Singapore issued four sheets, each contains 10 stamps, show the Farquhar collection drawings. One sheet devoted to terrestrial animals including one stamp shows the prosimian slow loris, called Kongkang in the local language:
