Flag of Brunei

The flag of Brunei, which has been adopted in 1959, is composed of a yellow leaf, black and white diagonal stripes and a national emblem in the center of the flag. However, it has not obtained status of national flag until 1984, when Brunei gained independence from Britain. National emblem consists of a red crescent at the bottom, two gloves turned to the sky at the sides and an umbrella on the top. The crescent is a traditional symbol of Islam and the umbrella stands for monarchy and royal dignity. Wings with four feathers adorning the umbrella are supposed to guard integrity and peace. Yellow is a typical color of Sultan and the diagonal stripes has been added in 1906 when Brunei became a British colony.
