What's In A Merdeka Theme?

Perikatan Nasional Youth has proposed an alternative Merdeka logo and theme for the four states it governs, rather than the national one put forward by the Madani government - which begs the question, why?

Then, we talk about whether these Merdeka themes and logos resonate with Malaysians, and ask, what themes would they pick instead?
