In 1819 the British East India Company established a trading post on Singapore. The flag of the company was a thirteen horizontal red-white stripes with the Union Flag in the top left corner. The Union Flag of Great Britain would also have been flown at this point.
In 1826 Singapore, Penang and Malacca were grouped together to create the Straits Settlement. The flag was a British Blue Ensign with the national flag top left and a white disc centre right on a red lozenge with a white upside down Y and three crowns.
The Japanese took control of Singapore in 1942 and the white field with red sun flag of Japan was adopted.
After the Japanese defeat in 1945 the British gained control again. In 1946 a new British Blue Ensign featuring a white disc with an inverted Y and a single crown was adopted.
Singapore became self-governing in 1959 and adopted a red-white horizontal bicolour with a white crescent moon and five five-pointed stars. When the country became truly independent in 1963 the flag remained the same.
Each element of the flag has a specific meaning. The red represents brotherhood and equality, white is purity and the crescent moon and stars represent Islam.
