Description
English: The Bunga Mas (translates as Golden Flowers) was a tribute sent every three years to the Siamese government in Bangkok, as a symbol of friendship by the Malay rulers of the northern states of the Peninsula (Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Patani). The sending of the Bunga Mas began in the 14th century as a colourful ceremonial presentation including four spears with gilded shafts, a kris encrusted with gems, a spitton, a box, an arrangement of betel leaves and two rings. In return, the King of Siam made gifts of equal value. The sending of the Bunga Mas stopped at the end of the 19th century.
