Product Description

?ÿ The central feature is a red shield with five white stars arranged in a circle above an upturned crescent moon. The colors are those of the Malay people (also seen in emblems of states like the Philippines and Indonesia). Red is symbolic of brotherhood, the white of purity and virtue. The figures have Moslem connotations relating to the religious affiliation of the Malay residents, but official interpretation states that the crescent symbolizes a young country on its way to attaining the ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice, and equality represented by the five stars. The "Malay red" is said to be symbolic of universal brotherhood and the equality of man, a diplomatic interpretation in a nation three-quarters ethnic Chinese with large Malay, Indian, Pakistani, Ceylonese, and Eurasian minorities. White is said to signify pervading and everlasting purity and virtue.?ÿ ?ÿ Symbols of the Nations, 242?ÿ ?ÿ
