I want to introduct something about .
The flag and the coat of arms of Terengganu are state symbols of Terengganu, a state in Malaysia. Like the majority of state symbols for states with Malay royalties, the flag and the arms of Terengganu centre around its royalty, as well as Islam, the state's traditional religious.

The flag of Terengganu. Flag ratio: 1:2.
First unfurled in 1953, the present flag of Terengganu encompasses a black flag with a thick, white border and a white star and crescent in the centre that points towards the fly. The width of the crescent is five-sixths the width of the black panel, while the width of the star, which is tilting clockwise, is two-thirds that of the crescent.
The white signifies the Sultan of Terengganu, while the black signifies the state's citizens; with the white border surrounding the black panel, the layout represents the Sultan's duty to protect his subjects. The star and crescent denote Islam as the official religion of the state.
In October 2006, then Menteri Besar of Terengganu, Idris Jusoh, voiced intentions by the state government to "[brighten] up" the flag and incorporate an emblem by first seeking opinions from professions, citing feedback of the flag being too "simple and dull". As of 2008, there have been no reports of further action.
District flags
Terengganu has seven administrative districts (daerah), each assigned their own district-level flags. All seven of the flags consist of only a single coloured field field with the state flag on the canton; the only distinction is the colour of the field, which corresponds to respectable districts and represents their qualities:
Field colour
Besut's development of land and power-generating infrastructures.
Dungun's fishing industry and tourism due to the presence of Penyu Belimbing, a species of sea turtles, at its beaches.
Hulu Terengganu
Hulu Terengganu's courage and willingness to work hard.
Kemaman's strength in the development of petroleum and natural gas-related industries.
Kuala Terengganu
Kuala Terengganu as the capital district of Terengganu, as its state capital and the royal state capital are both situated in the district.
Marang's responsibility in restoring of unity among its people.
Setiu's distribution of power by its people for the development of towns and cities.
Royal Standards
Terengganu's royalty, mostly prominently the Sultan of Terengganu, fly their own Royal Standards.
The Sultan's Royal Standard consists of a white flag bearing a partial rendition of the state emblem, as well as a wreath of rice stalks and a motto. Previously a plain white flag, the additional emblem, which is coloured yellow, was added to identify the flag to Terengganu's royal family.
The design of the Pemaisuri's (Queen's) Royal Standard is very similar to that of the Sultan's, but features a reversed arrangement of colours, with a white emblem against a yellow field. The Royal Standard of the Yang Di-pertuan Muda (Crown Prince) bears a similar colour configuration as the Queen's, but features only the partial rendition of the state emblem, which is significantly larger then that of the Sultan's and the Queen's.

Obsolete flags
Prior to the adoption of the present flag, the state flag of Terengganu previously sported a significantly different design, although many of its elements would be carried over to its successor. The earliest known variant of the state flag was used between 1925 and 1933, and consisted of only a white-black flag divided vertically with the black stripe two times wider than the white stripe. In 1933, a star and crescent that pointed upwards and featured rounder crescent was added on the black band, signifying Terengganu's recognition of Islam as the state's religion. The flag remained in use until the introduction of the current flag.
Additionally, the state government of Terengganu formerly flew its own "Governmental Service Flag", which design originated in the same manner as the state flag. Bearing the same vertical white-black layout, a white saltire was also included on the black stripe. Similarly, a star and crescent was also added in a later date, but was placed on the white stripe. The flag was rendered obsolete following the ineption of the present state flag, which was also to be used by the state...(and so on) To get More information , you can visit some products about menu calling stand, Air Ionizer Purifier, .
