The yellow crescent and star of the Selangor flag was changed to white 30 January 1965 according to Whitney Smith.

According to Flaggenbuch 1939, the former flag had indeed a yellow crescent and star, also the crescent was thinner and the star much smaller. It was also (and is still?) used by the Sultan. Dorling-Kindersley 1997 shows an erroneous [current] flag with yellow crescent and star.
