Bright red and yellow flower like a claw or big bird’s beak. What’s the name?

I took a picture of this bright flower on Sumatra island, Indonesia.  Please, help me to identify it.
When traveling it is not always possible to search Internet, especially photos to compare and identify the plant,  as in most places it is very slow or absent at all! 🙂 Thank you for your answers!
