The red color symbolizes universal brotherhood and equality, and the white color represents purity and virtue. The crescent represents a young nation on the rise and is a reference to the country's name, which means "Lion City" in Malay. The five white stars represent Singapore's ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice, and equality and are arranged in a circle to symbolize a unified Singapore. The flag was officially adopted on December 3, 1959, when Singapore became a self-governing state, and it remains a powerful emblem of the nation's values, aspirations, and commitment to multiculturalism and harmony.
