ⓘ Banner o Indonesie

The naitional banner o Indonesie, which is kent as Sang Saka Merah-Putih or Bendera Merah-Putih or simply Merah-Putih in Indonesian, is based on the banner o the 13t century Majapahit Empire in East Java. The banner itsel wis introduced an hoistit in public at the Indonesian Unthrildom Day ceremony, on 17 August 1945. The design o the banner haes remained the same iver syne.

The design o the banner is semple wi twa equal horizontal baunds, red top an white bottom wi an oweraw ratio o 2:3. The banner is seemilar tae the banner o Poland an banner o Singapore. The banner is identical tae the banner o Hesse a German state an banner o Monaco, excludin the ratio. Red represents courage, while white represents purity o intent.

The Naval Jack o Indonesie is reserved for sole uise bi Indonesian Navy. It flies frae ivery active Indonesian war ship mast. The design o the jack is describit as nine alternatin stripes o reid an white. It is nicknamed Ular-ular Perang War Pennant or litterally "War Snakes", probably due tae the stripes design. The naval jack dates tae the age Majapahit Empire. The Majapahit Empire, which wis renouned for its great maritime strength, uised tae flee seemilar jacks on its vessels.


1. History

Its colors are derived frae the banner o the 13t century Majapahit Empire. Later, thir colors wur revived bi students an then naitionalists in the early 20t century as an expression o naitionalism against the Dutch. The reid-white banner wis flewn for the first time in Java in 1928. Unner Dutch rule, the banner wis prohibitit. It wis adoptit as the naitional banner on 17 August 1945, when unthrildom wis declared an haes been in uise syne then.


1.1. History Alternative history

Thare is an aa anither story aboot the banner o Indonesie, which is significantly relatit tae the banner o the Netherlands. Unner Dutch colonialism, ivery admeenistration uised the Netherlands Red-white-blue banner. The banner o Indonesie wis prohibitit. Tae seembolise the intention o forcin oot the Dutch, the Indonesian naitionalists an umthirldom movement tore apart the Dutch banner. Thay tore aff the bottom third o the banner, an separatit the reid an white colors frae the blue colour. The main reason wis acause blue in the Dutch banner wis unnerstood as staunding for the "blue bloodit" aristocracy. Conversely, the reid colour representit the bluid shed in the War o Unthrildom, while the white coud be unnerstood tae seembolise the purity o the Indonesians.

3. Seembolism

The red staunds for courage, while the white staunds for purity. The red represents humans body or pheesical life, while white represents humans soul or spiritual life. Thegither they staund for a complete human being.

Tradeetionally, maist Indonesians hae uised reid an white as thair ceremonial colors, mixin the colour o sugar the reid colour comes frae palm sugar or gula aren an rice white in colour. Inarguably, till the day, baith o thir are the major components o daily Indonesian cuisine or cookin.
