The Darjah Utama Yang Amat Mulia Bintang Sarawak (Most Exalted Order of the Star of Sarawak) is the highest state order in the state of Sarawak. It is conferred to those who rendered excellent service towards the development of the state of Sarawak and Malaysia.[1] The Order was established in 1964, a year after the Sarawak's independence within the formation of Malaysia. The history of the order can be traced back to 1928, where a similar order named Order of the Star of Sarawak was established by the Brooke Raj. However, the revived order has no connection with the previous order, except for the similarity of the name of the order. The motto of the Order is based on the state motto and the current one was adopted in 1988.[citation needed] The design of the order ribbon was changed twice, first in 1973 and again in 1988. The design follows the colors of the Sarawak flag: blue, red and white (1973 design), and yellow, black and red (1988 design). Both the Officer of the Star of Sarawak (JBS) and Officer of the Star of Hornbill Sarawak (JBS) share the same necklace design.[citation needed]
