Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, Singapore joined Malaysia in 1963, but withdrew two years later and became independent. It subsequently became one of the world's most prosperous countries, with strong international trading links (its port is one of the world's busiest) and with per capita GDP above that of the leading nations of Western Europe. The flag was adopted in 1959 and is in the traditional Malaysian colours of red and white.
The red symbolizes the universal fellowship of mankind and the white represents virtue and purity. The crescent moon is said to represent the ascent of the then new nation, although it is said to have been included to placate Singapore's substantially Muslim populated neighbours. The five stars represent the five ideals of Democracy, Peace, Progress, Justice and Equality.BUY NOW
