Fourteen stripes of equal size (red, white); blue rectangle on which a yellow crescent moon and a yellow sun are visible.

Meaning

The blue rectangle symbolizes the unity and strength of the people; the yellow crescent symbolizes Islam; the 14 rays of the sun symbolize the unity of the 14 states of the confederation; the yellow itself represents the traditional color of the rulers of the Malaya states; the 14 stripes (red and white) symbolize the 14 states of the country. The design is derived from the design of the U.S. flag and originally (after 1957 as Malaya independent from Great Britain) had only 11 rays of the sun and 11 stripes. When three more states joined the confederation in 1963 (Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak), the flag was adapted accordingly. When Singapore left the confederation in 1965, the flag remained unchanged. The 14th stripe now applies to the Kuala Lumpur area.
