The unique design of Tourism Selangor Flotilla has been inspired by the Retro style approach. Selangor rich in history, culture as well as Legends. Leading the Selangor flotilla, during the Magic Of The Night 2016 event, is our very own legend in Malaysian Football, SUPER MOKH in his most famous pose! Played for Selangor from 1972 till 1990 and played for national team from 1972 until 1985! Drums used for moral support as well as cheering after a victorious win. Behind the drums are Centong Buluh, a bamboo stamping tube that the famous Mah Meri tribe of Pulau Carey used during their many interesting celebrations and festivals. Flying proudly is the leaf origami bird by the Mah Meri tribe, renowned for their masterful leaf origami as well as wood carving. Thanks to the conservation and preservation, their population are increasing and they still practice the culture which is their belief towards their ancestors and spirit. Masks displayed are the Spirit of Kelolong and Mayang Lembu. These are produced by the Mah Meri tribe and these masks are as well sought for future generations.  Bunga Tanjung also known as Spanish Cherry is the official flower of Selangor, the petals represents diversity and regional destinations and the red and yellow petals symbolise the official flag of Selangor. Relics of the past, the lighthouse, the oldest palace in Selangor, Palace Jugra and the Tok Bedil’s canons still stand proudly at Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor.
