Civil Ensign

[Civil Ensign (Malaysia)] 1:2
by Zeljko Heimer

Malaysian civil ensign - red with national flag in canton bordered blue, ratio 1:2. From Flagmakers catalogue.

Zeljko Heimer, 4 July 1996

Most of the time the national flag is flown rather than the civil ensign although there are still occasions where the latter is used.

Naval Ensign

[Naval Ensign (Malaysia)] 1:2
by Jan Oskar Engene

The emblem on Malaysia's naval ensign consists of an anchor and two crossed traditional daggers (called kris). In Jane's Fighting Ships the colour of the emblem is black, but I think dark blue is the appropriate colour. At least it is depicted as blue in Pedersen 1970. According to Pedersen, the naval ensign was introduced in 1968. The national flag in the canton is outlined with a thin red line, so that the bottom white stripe appears correctly on the white field. There is no red cross in this ensign.

Jan Oskar Engene, 19 September 1996

According to Barraclough and Crampton 1981 the Malaysian jack is the same as the national flag.
