Royal Regalia and Decorations Are Set Up

As the beating of the Nakara reverberated during the 'Majlis Istiadat Membuka Gendang Jaga-Jaga' at the Lapau in Bandar Seri Begawan, yesterday morning, the Royal Regalia and Decorations were also set up at the Balai-Balai Pemajangan at Istana Nurul Iman and Darussidiq in Jerudong.

The Royal Regalia were put up along both Balai Pemajangan as soon as twenty-one cannon shots resounded during the 'Majlis Istiadat Membuka Gendang Jaga-Jaga'. Among the royal regalia and decorations are Tunggul Charok, Payong Ubor-Ubor, Ula-Ula Besar, Payong Haram, Chogan UGAMA, Chogan Diraja, Payong Tinggi, Tunggul Alam Bernaga and Dadap. The Regalia, inherited through the eras of Brunei's monarchical dynasty, each has its own meaning.

The Royal Regalia are usually installed during royal weddings, coronation and royal processions. The Pemajangan is built according to the suitability of the place and each is known as Pemajangan Kenaikan, Pemajangan Pelaluan, Pemajangan Istana, Pemajangan Lapau and Pemajangan Kenderaan. Normally it is decorated with the red-coloured Rawai Lidah.

The Banting Flag is also set up as decorations along the main route of Istana Nurul Iman.

The Royal Regalia and Decorations were also set up at the Balai Pemajangan Darussidiq, Jerudong. Among the royal regalia and decorations are Tunggul Charok, Payong Ubor-Ubor, Ula-Ula Besar, Payong Haram and Payong Tinggi.
