Amazing Tourism Malaysia . National Symbols of Malaysia

National Flag - Jalur Gemilang
National Flag - Jalur Gemilang The national flag of Malaysia, known as Jalur Gemilang (Glorious Stripes), consists of 14 horizontal red and white stripes of equal width, representing the equal membership in the federation of the 13 component States and the Federal Government. The color of dark blue in the upper quarter and extending down to the top of the fifth stripe stands for the unity of the Malaysians. The union contains a crescent which is the symbol of Islam. The 14 points of the star are emblematic of the unity of the 13 States and the Federal Government. The yellow of the crescent and the star is the royal colour of Their Royal Highnesses the Rulers, while the red colour is reflecting the bravery of warriors to defend and protect our native land.

National Flower - Hibiscus
National Flower - hibiscus The national flower of Malaysia is the hibiscus (Rosa Sinensis), or as it is locally known the Bunga Raya. No one knows when the flower was first introduced to Malaysia, but undoubtedly it came via trade from its original home in China, Japan and the Pacific islands probably before the 12th century. The Bunga Raya is found in abundance throughout the country, and has many varieties and colours. Malaysians, however, have chosen the red five-petalled type as their national flower.
   
National Animal - Tiger
National Animal - Tiger

Known as Lord of the Jungle, tiger has aptly been chosen as the national animal of Malaysia.

It is included in the national armorial bearings. Although seldom seen, tigers are not uncommon in the Malaysian jungle. In contrast to the lion’s position as the King of Beasts, tigers constitute little serious threat to human beings unless wounded or very old and feeble. Together with panthers and leopards, the tiger is a local member of the cat family.
