The Singapore flag design consists of a bicolour design of a red and white band running horizontally. The red band is charged with a white crescent moon, facing the fly side of the flag with a pentagon of five white stars, which resemble the Southern Cross. This design has been in use since 1959, when Singapore became self-governing. The design was reconfirmed in 1965 when Singapore gained independence.
The symbolism of the flags elements are red for universal brotherhood and equality of man, the white for pervading and everlasting purity and virtue. While the stars and crescent moon are now recognised as a symbol for Islam- which Singapore's Muslim activists see the flag in this context, originally the moon represented a young nation on the ascendant, and the stars for the nationals ideals of equality, justice, progress, peace and democracy. Singapore is only one of two countries in the Northern Hemisphere to feature the Southern Cross on its flag (the second is Brazil).
