Meaning of Brunei Flag

Symbolism and Meaning of Brunei Flag

Do you look at the Flag of Brunei and wonder what it means? We can help answer that.

The flag of Brunei is rather different than most. It is yellow dissected diagonally by white and a black stripe. There is a read coat of arms in the middle of the flag.

The flag was adopted on 29 September 1959 and was retained as the national flag after independence on 1 January 1984. On the coat of arms there is a crescent symbolic of Islam which is closed by a parasol which is representative of royalty.

There are two gloves, one on each side of the crescent. Written in Arabic script “State of Brunei Abode of Peace” and the motto “Always in Service with God’s guidance”, not a bad motto for everyone Muslim or not.

Black and white are symbolic of the chief government minister and yellow represents the Sultan of Brunei.

We have seen the quote about service interpreted as the famous Muslim statement of belief: “There is no deity but God and Muhammad is the messenger of God”.

Like people in most countries, the people of Brunei see their flag as a symbol of hope for the future of their country and the world.

Before 1906 the Brunei flag was a plain yellow flag with no symbols just a yellow cloth.
