The Malaysia flag, also known as the Jalur Gemilang
(Stripes of Glory), was adopted in 1963. Its 14 stripes represent Malaysia’s 13 states and the federal government and the 14-point Bintang Persekutuan
(Federal Star) shows their unity. The crescent symbolizes Islam. The first stanza of Malaysia’s anthem explains the colors: “Your Red represents steely will/ Your White represents clean and kind character/ Yellow of the Sovereign, the country’s protector/ Blue for all of us in unity”.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
