Facts and History of Malaysia Flag

Success and development: Facts and History of Malaysia Flag

Malaysia’s “Stripes of Glory” combine all the elements that define this country as whole:


the fourteen red and white stripes proudly alternating represent the thirteen states that have equal power and significance, while the fourteenth stripes represents the federal government.
