Flag Proposals 1949 Document, BT 11/4189, in the Public Record Office at Kew explains some
of the thinking behind the design of the Malaysian Flag. Federation of Malaya Order No.61 of
1949 announced that a committee
hadbeen set up to make recommendations for the design of a Federation Flag. A competition was
organised with the suggestion that, in any design submitted, the flag should be simple, and have
not more than four colours, which might perhaps be yellow, red, white and blue, the colours most
frequently used in the flags of the nine states and two settlements of the federation. Suitable
symbols would include the kris(a Malayan sword), tiger, and crescent.A total of 373 entries were
received. The committee chose three to put before the Legislative Council:
In the centre of a blue flag, two crossed red kris, surrounded by a circleof eleven white five
pointed stars. (Crossed kris can be seen behindthe anchor on the Malaysian naval ensign).
Explanation. Colours; red was found on six state/settlement flags,white on five, and blue on
three, and all were colours of the UnionJack. Eleven stars of equal size, equally spaced,
represented the states/settlements in no particular order, and each of equalimportance. Kris was
of great antiquity and peculiar to the
Malayanarchipelago, thus identifying the flag with Malaya.

Similarto the first proposal, but with the stars arranged in two concentric circles, one of six stars,
outside one of five stars. Explanation. The same as first proposal, with the inner circle of stars
representing the Unfederated Malay States and the outer circle the four Federated States and two
ixblue and five white horizontal stripes. A red canton half the length ofthe flag resting on top of
the white stripe second from the bottom. Ayellow five point star, oriented with one point in the
six o’clockposition, in the centre of the canton, and a yellow crescent, arranged like a

Thenewspaper Malay Mail published the designs and organised a poll. 42 percent favoured the
third proposal, 27 percent wanted the fourth, withkris instead of the crescent and star, and 25
percent wanted a Union Jack included. On 6 March 1950 the Federal Legislative Council decided
that none of the designs were acceptable, and asked for a revised design that wouldbe considered
on 19 April. At this meeting the Council approved a revised version of (3)in which, the blue
stripes were replaced by red stripes, the red cantonwas replaced by a blue canton, and the five
point star was replaced byan eleven point star.
Hakikatnya siapa sebenarnya pemenang peraduan mencipta bendera tersebut? Akhirnya dengan
persetujuan dari Raja Inggeris rupanya jadi begini!
Setelah diubahsuai beberapa kali, reka bentuk tersebut telah teliti pada Mesyuarat Majlis
Raja-Raja pada 22 dan 23 Februari 1950. Reka bentuk bendera tersebut telah mendapat kelulusan
Raja George VI pada 19 Mei 1950…. Ini pula bendera Amerika Syarikat atau dikenali dengan
First Republik Of Freemason ( rujuk pada perlembagaan dan bahan-bahan sejarah yang terukir di
