Description

The 3 stripes on the Perak flag represent the 3 branches of the Perak royal family. The white stripe represents the Sultan, the yellow stripe represents the Raja Muda or Prince and the black stripe represents the Raja Di Hilir. In the Perak government, the Raja Muda will replace the Sultan and the Raja Di Hilir will replace the Raja Muda.

Giuseppe Bottasini, 13 August 1997

Flaggenbuch 1939 shows the national flag of Perak as horizontally white-yellow-black, similar to current one.

Rajah Di Hilir's Flag

Yang Amat Mulia Raja Bendahara / His Highness the Prime Minister

[Raja Di Hilir / Prime Minister (Perak, Malaysia)] 1:2
by Ivan Sache

The Neubecker 1992 facsimile of Flaggenbuch 1939, in the Corrections section, shows the flag of the Yang Amat Malia [sic] Raja Bendahara as the Sultan's flag, but with black field and thin yellow fimbriation between main field and canton.

Ivan Sache, 13 January 2000

Is the Raja Di Hilir the same as the Raja Bendahara? They appear to have the same flag, anyway.

Santiago Dotor, 28 December 2000

I think the Raja di Hilir is the second in line to the Perak throne, after the Raja Muda.

Flag of the British Resident

[British Resident (Perak, Malaysia)] 1:2
by Ivan Sache

The flag of the British Resident is problematic. The initial (December 1939) edition of Flaggenbuch 1939 showed the flag of the British Resident as a forked white flag with national flag in canton. However, the Corrections to Flaggenbuch 1939 which appear in the Neubecker 1992 facsimile, show the flag of the British Resident as a national flag forked. Was this the correction of an error or a change in the flag? Jaume Ollé shows a third one, national flag forked with Union Flag in canton.

Flag of the British Resident, probably mistaken

[British Resident, probably mistaken (Perak, Malaysia)] 1:2
by Jaume Ollé

As far as I know this was not an official British flag. If there was any uniformity among the flags of the British Residents of the Malay States, it should have been the forked national flag. I wonder if Jaume Ollé's image arose from a misunderstood description, in which the field of the forked national flag was combined with a canton as the resident's flag was supposed to have had which was described as "of the national flag", and mistakenly thought to refer to the national flag of the Resident, not the national flag of the State.
