Hibiscus is Malaysia’s national flower where it’s locally known as the Bunga Raya. The word bunga in Malay means, “flower”, whilst raya in Malay means “big” or “grand”. The hibiscus is literally known as the “big flower” in Malay.
Hibiscus species represent nations. Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is the national flower of Malaysia while Hibiscus syriacus is the national flower of South Korea.
