Malaysia's national flag, known as the Jalur Gemilang (Stripes of Glory), has 14 alternating red and white stripes along the fly and a blue canton in the upper hoist corner featuring a crescent and a 14-point star known as the Bintang Persekutuan (Federal Star).
The 14 stripes signify the equal position of the federation's 13 member states and federal territories, while the 14 points of the star represent the entities' unity and harmony. The crescent signifies Islam, the country's official religion, and the blue canton represents Malaysian unity. The yellow of the star and crescent represents the Malay kings' regal hue.
The flag is part of the stars and stripes and Muslim crescent flag families. It was officially adopted in 1963, when Malaysia was founded as a federation of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore (which later left the federation in 1965). Since its adoption, it has been a key symbol of national pride and solidarity among Malaysians.
