Flag

Bendera / 'Sang Saka Biru'

From the Royal Malaysian Police website (my translation):

A flag is a symbol of excellence and pride for an armed uniformed organisation like the Royal Malaysian Police. The flag of the Royal Malaysian Police is called Sang Saka Biru [I cannot translate this term]. The colour blue is chosen as it is the common colour among most of the police forces around the world. Blue represents peace, well-being and stability that is the main aim of a police force.
There was also an entry on the colours of the Royal Malaysian Police. The text beneath the logo reads Sang Saka Biru which is the name of the flag — ostensibly this name seems to interchangeable between the flag and the colours. (...) The Royal Malaysian Police logo can be found here and the description is translated below:
The logo of Royal Malaysian Police that is use today has its own significance and meaning. The Crescent and Star symbolises Islam as the official religion of the nation. The calligraphic rendition of the name of Allah represents the element of piety as the symbol of sovereignty of Islam. The Crown represents the devotion to the holiness and omnipotence of Allah; it also represents our loyalty and honour of HM the Yang Dipertuan Agong who invested the 'Royal' title to the Police Force. The Keris (dagger on the left hand side) represents Peninsular Malaysia. The Parang Elang or Kelewang [dagger on the right hand side, literally means Eagle Sword] represents the states of Sabah and Sarawak. The Tiger represents bravery and agility in facing challenges from the enemy. The Rice Stalks represent the staple food of the nation and symbolises the prosperity of the nation. The motto 'POLIS DIRAJA MALAYSIA' (Royal Malaysian Police) represents the spirit and tenacity of the officers of the Royal Malaysian Police.

From the Royal Malaysian Police website (my translation):

The Colours of the Royal Malaysian Police was invested by HM the 3rd Yang Dipertuan Agong, Tuanku Syed Putra Almarhum Syed Hassan Jamalullail on the 11th November 1992 [should be a typo as HM reigned from 1st September 1960 through 20th September 1965]. The Investiture of the Colours constitutes an acknowledgement and recognition of the glorious success and sacrifice of the Royal Malaysian Police during the Communist Rebellion in the First Emergency [1948-1960]. During this Emergency the police killed a total of 5,762 Communist Terrorists. The Royal Malaysian Police suffered a total of 1,346 officers killed and 1,601 officers injured in this effort to defend the nation's sovereignty. The Investiture also serves as an inspiration to Royal Malaysian Police officers of today to serve the force and the nation with dedication and excellence.
