The coat of arms of the Straits Settlements
The Straits Settlements were a collection of territories of the British East India Company in Southeast Asia, which were given collective administration in 1826 as a crown colony, as distinct from the native princely states, some of which later formed the Federated Malay States. Initially, the Straits Settlements consisted of Penang, sometimes officially named Prince of Wales Island; Singapore with about a score of islets of insignificant size lying in its immediate vicinity; the islands and territory of the Dinding, Province Wellesley and the town and territory of Malacca. The colony was dissolved with effect from 1 April 1946, Singapore becoming a separate crown colony, and Malacca and Penang joining the Malayan Union.
