Obverse At Right – The national emblem of Brunei is featured prominently on the flag of Brunei. It was adopted in 1940. There are five main components to the national emblem: the flag, the royal parasol (ceremonial umbrella), the wings, the hands, and the crescent.

In the centre- The Tapak Kuda Laut Flower (Ipomoea pes-caprae), also known as beach morning glory or goat’s foot, is a common pantropical creeping vine belonging to the family Convolvulaceae. It grows on the upper parts of beaches and endures salted air. This medicinal plant symbolizes the agreement that has withstood the test of time.
