Brunei's flag showcases a yellow field with diagonal black and white stripes coming from the corners of the flag's hoist side. Overlaid in the center is the country's national emblem in red. The yellow background signifies the Sultan of Brunei, who is considered the protector of the faith. The black and white stripes represent the country's chief ministers, with black for the Pengiran Bendahara (First Minister) and white for the Pengiran Pemancha (Second Minister). The emblem contains various symbols, including a parasol symbolizing monarchy, the crescent for Islam, and the two upturned hands representing the benevolence of the nation's government.
