The National Flag of Singapore was adopted, and replaced the Union Jack (British Flag) on 3rd December 1959. It was created by a committee under the guidance of the then Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Toh Chin Chye. The same flag was adopted again after Singapore’s independence from Malaysia.
The National Flag has two equal horizontal bands of red (top) and white with a vertical white crescent on the hoist side of the red band. The crescent encloses five-pointed stars arranged in a circle.
