According to the writings of Ahmad Boestamam, the UMNO flag (bendera UMNO) originated from Sang Saka Merah Putih (the magic of the red and white), which was originally nominated by PKMM at the first UMNO sitting in Dewan Bandaran Ipoh, after UMNO was formed in June 1946; Sang Saka Merah Putih was actually the PKMM flag. The British had labelled PKMM as leftist but oddly enough, accepted UMNO and its PKMM-derived flag; the round yellow patch and bare green keris (Malay dagger) were added later.

UMNO Melaka Division comprised 100 members (instead of 165 members). This issue was raised by Ketua Menteri Melaka, Encik Abdul Ghafar Baba, who questioned Tuan Syed Abdullah bin Ahmad Al-Edrus, UMNO Head. This was published in Berita Harian on 26 June 1963.
Melaka, Selasa.- Ketua Menteri Melaka, Encik Abdul Ghafar bin Baba malam tadi telah menolak kenyataan bahawa 165 orang ahli UMNO cawangan Banda Hilir di sini telah berhenti sebagai membantah Tuan J.L. de Cruz, ahli Majlis Mesyuarat dari Malayan Party dilantik sebagai ahli bersekutu UMNO dalam pilihan2 raya Majlis Munisipal bulan hadapan.
Encik Ghafar berkata kenyataan itu tidak benar kerana jumlah ahli UMNO cawangan Banda Hilir hanya kira2 100 orang sahaja.
Beliau berkata demikian dalam mesyuarat yang diadakan di Banda Hilir untuk menyusun balik cawangan itu setelah ketuanya, Tuan Syed Abdullah bin Ahmad Al-Edrus meletakkan jawatannya.
Tuan Syed Abdullah bertanding sebagai calun UDP dalam pilihan2 raya Munisipal sekarang. 
Berjanji
--------
Encik Ghaffar berkata Syed Abdullah berasal daripada Pontianak, Indonesia dan setelah menjadi rakyat Persekutuan atas sokongan Tengku Abdul Rahman, berjanji hendak menyokong Perikatan dan UMNO sehingga akhir hayatnya.
Tuan Syed itu, katanya, selalu menemuinya untuk meminta pertolongan hatta atas perkara2 yang kecil sekali pun.
Pada bulan lalu, kata Encik Ghaffar, Tuan Syed itu menyerahkan $50 kepada ibu pejabat UMNO Melaka sebagai bayaran yuran ahli2 UMNO cawangan Banda Hilir.
Inche Ghaffar berkata kalau seperti yang didakwa oleh Tuan Syed itu ahli2 UMNO Banda HIlir berjumlah 165 orang, dia (Encik Ghaffar) ingin tahu baki bayaran yuran itu. Taken from Berita Harian, 26 June 1963, Page 5. Ghaffar: Ta' benar ahli Bandar Hilir 165 orang
