The Royal Standard (proportions 1:2) is described (but incorrectly pictured!) in The Malaysia Homepage:
The Royal Standard is flown to mark the presence of His Majesty, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. It has a yellow background with the Coat of Arms of Malaysia in the centre enwreathed by two sheaves of paddy. Yellow is the symbol of royalty. The sheaves of paddy signify abundance or prosperity.

My image of the royal standard is based on the above description and an image in Smith 1975.

[I believe] there are 10 [groups] of leaves, 3 leaves [to a group], in each side, total 20 [groups] and both sides [meet at the top].
Jaume Ollé, 12 June 2001
If I remember correctly [the arms on] the Malaysian royal standard is not encircled by a garland of leaves, but by a garland of golden sheaves of rice.
