Indonesian Flag

We carry authentic Indonesia Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Indonesia national flag is often displayed at embassies, outside of businesses associated with Indonesia, and at the homes of people who take great pride in their Indonesian heritage.

Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor International Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Indonesia Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial international flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.

Our outdoor international flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in four sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., and 5ft. x 8ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations, businesses, and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their international pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Indonesia flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor International Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Indonesia Flag on your front porch. Outdoor flags can also be displayed indoors on interior walls of your home with screws anchored in the wall to attach to the grommets.

In addition to the flags we offer for purchase, we maintain an archive of the audio and lyrics of the Indonesia National Anthem, historical information about the Indonesia flag, demographic data about Indonesia, and free high resolution images of the Indonesia flag for use in projects and on websites.

Regardless of your application, we are looking forward to working with you to provide the required flags, flagpoles, and hardware for your application. If you need assistance, please reach out to us by phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to help.

History of the Indonesian Flag

The flag of Indonesia is a basic two color design with the top half being red and the bottom half white. It was first raised in public on August 17th, 1945 at the Indonesian Declaration of Independence in Jakarta and again, when the Dutch transferred sovereignty on August 17th, 1950. The design has remained untouched since.

The Indonesian Navy, however, uses the Naval Jack flag of Indonesia exclusively, which is comprised of nine alternating red and white stripes, flying from the mast of every active warship.

It is said that the Indonesian flags red and white colors have evolved from the Majapahit Empire banner used in the 13th century. The cotton woven fabrics were white in color and the red was one of the earliest natural dyes of ancient Indonesia, obtained from teak leaves, flowers called Averrhoa Bilimbi, and the skin of the Mangosteen fruits.

In the early 20th century students used the red and white colors as an interpretation of nationalism against the Dutch, whilst in 1928 the modern red and white flag was first flown in Java and prohibited under Dutch rule but Indonesia's Declaration of Independence in 1945 saw the country adopt this as its national flag and have used it ever since.

There are a few ideas as to what the red and white colors stand for, one is red is for courage with the white symbolizing purity. A different suggestion is that red is symbolic of the human body or physical life and the white being that of the soul or spiritual life. Together they are the complete human being.

Red and white are also popular food colors used in traditional Indonesian cooking. The white color is said to represent sugar, while the red represents red rice. Both of these ingredients are daily staples in Indonesian cuisine.

The governance regarding the use of the flag of Indonesia states the flag can be raised between sunrise and sunset. There are some exceptions for night usage. There are also certain dates that the flag must be flown including Indonesian Independence Day and the flag is often displayed at schools, offices, homes, and colleges. The flag may be used as the coffin cover for Presidents, current and former, Vice Presidents, Members of Cabinet, Speaker of People's Representative Council, Heads of Government, Indonesian Armed Forces, and members of the Indonesian National Police.

There are certain days when the flag should be displayed at half mast to show a sign of mourning. December 26th, is one of these days, to demonstrate the mourning for victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami along with other mourning days noted by the government.

The flag must be displayed in pristine condition. Citizens are banned from causing damage to the flag, destroying the honor of the national flag or using it in a commercial way. It cannot be used as a cover for a roof or wrapping for goods.

Indonesia is the world's largest island country situated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The Capital of Indonesia is Jakarta.
