Malaysia's national flag flies by the Petronas Towers 24 Jan 2017
About this photo
The national flag hangs by the entrance to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The flag bears 13 equal red and white stripes with a blue canton holding a yellow crescent moon and a 14-point star (Bintang Persekutuan). The stripes represent the equal status of the 13 member states and the federal government, the star represents the unity of these entities and the crescent represents Islam, the national religion. The twin towers stand at 452 metres tall and were architecturally designed to symbolise the culture and advancement of Malaysia on the world stage.
