For many years Singapore was a colony under British rule and it was mandated that a flag showing the British Union Jack be displayed. After achieving independence in 1959 the current flag was unveiled. It was designed to reflect the citizens of Malaysia, both Chinese and Muslims. Red represents the Chinese, with the crescent moon symbolizing Muslims.
Singapore flags are 100% SolarMax Nylon, the longest lasting nylon flag material available. You can fly them outdoors for extended periods because they withstand the damaging effects of sun and wind. Made in America.
