Possible Regent's or Crown Prince's Flag?

Further down in that webpage, just above the picture of the crown prince and regent (Raja Muda), there is a coat-of-arms-like image, white on a green field. I wonder if this is the central element (or maybe the emblem on the fly) of a green flag (perhaps with red canton with white crescent and star) which would be the regent's flag.

Flag until 1965

[Pre-1965 Flag (Selangor, Malaysia)] 1:2

The yellow crescent and star of the Selangor flag was changed to white 30 January 1965 according to Whitney Smith.

According to Flaggenbuch 1939 [neu39], the former flag had indeed a yellow crescent and star, also the crescent was thinner and the star much smaller. It was also (and is still?) used by the Sultan. Dorling-Kindersley 1997 [udk97] shows an erroneous [current] flag with yellow crescent and star.
