Datuk Kong belief is specific to Malaysia and Singapore. The above shows a picture of Datuk Panglima Putih (White), together with Datuk Panglima Merah (Red), Datuk Panglima Kuning (Yellow), Datuk Panglima Hijau (Green) and Datuk Panglima Hitam (Black - Not shown in picture). Some believe that the five colours: white, red, yellow, green and black represents five elements in Chinese belief: metal (west), fire (south), earth (centre), wood (east) and water (north).
It is actually imposible to give a complete list of Datuk available out there as different places will have different Datuks. In Teluk Intan, people worship Datuk Haji Tua (Old Haj) and in other places Datuk Kaki Bukit etc. So suffice just to list the above examples. Perhaps the number of Datuks in Malaysia and Singapore can total up to 108 such as that of the 108 Ruesi.
