S.K. President No. 106 / TK / 1975 dated November 3, 1975.

Sultan Agung or Susuhunan Agung (literally, "Great Sultan" or "Majestic Sultan") is subject of a substantial amount of literature due to his legacy as a Javanese ruler, a fighter against the incursions of the Dutch East India Company, a conqueror, and his existence within a cultural framework where myth and magic are well intertwined with verifiable historical events and personages. The Dutch literature wrote his name by Agoeng de Grote (literally, "Agung the Great").

For his service as a fighter and cultural observer, Sultan Agung has been declared as National Hero of Indonesia based on Presidential Decree no. 106/TK/1975, issued on November 3, 1975.
