Bendera - the flag
Payung Ubor-Ubor - the Royal Umbrella
Sayap - the wing
Tangan (Kimhap) - the hand
Bulan - the crescent

Bulan - the crescent - is the symbol of Islam, the national religion of Brunei Darussalam.
The characters inscribed on the crescent is the National slogan, "Always in service with God's guidance" (Allah guidance)

The Bendera and Payung Ubor-Ubor have been Royal regalia's since the creation of the crest. The Sayap - the wing of four feathers - symbolizes the protection of justice, tranquility, prosperity and peace

Tangan or Kimhap - the hand - signifies the Government's pledge to promote welfare, peace and prosperity. The scroll beneath the crest reads "Brunei Darussalam" which means "Brunei, the abode of peace"

skates are members of the rajidae. most skates are a mottled brownish color with whitish undersides & usually rest on the bottom during the day, lying partly buried in sand or mud, become active at night to feed on shellfish, crustaceans & sometimes small fish. they swim by making smooth undulations of their pectoral fins (croxfiber will try to issue articles on rajiformes i.e. 8 families of cartilaginous fish & includes the rays, mantas, sawfish & skates)

short shank curved
a hybrid of the long shank curved & wide gape hook, the short shank offer super hook-hold with either bottom baits or pop-ups. the slightly curved shank help the hook to turn into a fish's mouth. the only drawback is that it's generally larger in profile than its wide gape counterpart

long shank
with their long straight shanks & straight hook points, long shank hooks are favourite for present anglers. the pattern turns well in the fish's mouth & offer good hook-holding properties

wide gape
usually having short shank with either staright or slightly in-turned eyes, wide gape hooks are an excellent all-round pattern for a variety of fish baits. they are also used to great effect when floater or zig-rig fishing

beaked point
beaked or in-turned hooks, as they are sometimes known, produce excellent hook-holds, particularly in snaggy 'hit & hold' swims or weedy waters. they may not catch hold as well as other patterns but when they do they are one of the most reliable patterns of hook you can use

long shank curved
banned on some waters after allegations that they cause damages to the fish's mouth in several countries, they are renowned for their excellent hooking qualities. also, the shape make them difficult for the fish to eject once the hook takes hold in its mouth

out turned
hooks with out turned eyes are excellent for use with pop-up rigs over 'chod' or silt, or with stiff mono rigs, because the stiff hooklink comes off the hook at a much less aggressive angle. this helps the hook to twist & 'turn into' the fish's mouth

short shank
one of the best all-round hooks you can use, the simple short shank has become angler's favourite. many believe that when it comes to effectively pricking the fish's lip a straight point hook offers the best success rate. the drawback is they're occasionally less than secure hook-holding ability. they seem best suited to open water fishing & surface tactics, when used in smaller sizes such as a 10 or 12

probably, fish hook or similar device has been around us for numerous thousand of years

stone age fish hook made from bone
various fish hooks in the early age were from palestine about 7000 bc. man had crafted them from all sorts of materials to include wood, animal & human bone, horn, shells, stones, bronze, iron up to current day materials

in many cases, hooks were created from multiple materials to leverage the strength & positive characteristics of each material. norwegians as late as the 1950s still used juniper wood to craft burbot hooks

fish hooks attached to artificial lures

up-turned, down-turned & straight hook eyes
quality steel hooks began to make their appearance in europe in the 1600s & hook making became a task for professionals
