Story : Set against the background of wind and clouds to strongly denote its place of origin, BAH is a colloquial word for Sabahans to express various kinds of emotions, making it a rich language. It can also be an acronym, for what it represents today. 'B' stands for bagi-bagi or share in English where we share our lives and values with one another. 'A' is for apple! Just kidding. 'A' is for arts representing the creative scenes that are much alive in our country; while 'H' represents heritage perfectly captured by diverse cultural and natural elements.

Artists : Crig Roynno Francis (Cracko), Suparno Sapar (Phey) 
& Lydiana Iliyas (Lybby).
