In conjunction with 55th Merdeka and 49th Malaysia Day celebrations, the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia and the National Archives of Malaysia proudly present a photography exhibition and catalogue featuring 72 black and white photos. These photos highlight the history of Malaysia’ s formation and exemplify the symbolism contained in the Jalur Gemilang – Courage (red), Unity (blue), Royalty (yellow), Sincerity and Integrity (white), Islam (the crescent) and Malaysia’ s 13 states and Federal Government (the 14 – pointed star and stripes). Quotes from all six Malaysian prime ministers, past and present, further enhance the message of patriotism and prosperity.
