Description

The 9th Southeast Asian Games were held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 19 December - 26 December 1977.

Brunei, Indonesia, and the Philippines were finally admitted into the SEAP Games Federation in February that year.

Although the word 'Peninsula' was omitted from the new federation title to reflect the expansion, its emblem (which featured six rings representing the six founding members), and the sequential numbering of the games was kept to provide continuity, as well as reverence to the objectives, aspirations and contributions of the founders.

The six-ring emblem was not replaced until 1999, when the present ten-ring emblem was first used in an official games logo. Ceremony venue Stadium Merdeka
