sidepxs14According to legend, it is from a tale of two warring brothers, Wan Ahmad (later known as Sultan Ahmad Al-Muadzam Shah) was residing in Terengganu and strategizing on how to defeat his brother, Wan Mutahir, while drinking coffee. After his victory, the inspiration for an emblem came in the form of a coffee leaf which symbolized his family motto and two ivory tusks crossed at the bottom of the leaf. The elephant tusks symbolized power, because the elephant is considered as the most powerful and biggest land animal, as described in Malay history about its expediency as a royal carriage. The State motto, with the words Ya Latif means an aura of gentility as a symbol that Royal rule never uses violence.
