Flag Of Bangladesh – The Symbol Of Natural Landscape

The national flag of Bangladesh was promulgated formally on 17 Jan 1972. It is derived from an identical flag used during the Bangladesh Freedom War of 1971. A red disk is on top of the green area; balanced out a little bit toward the left. The red disk symbolizes the sun rising over Bengal, and the blood of those who passed away for the freedom of Bangladesh. The green area appears for the lushness of the area of Bangladesh. The red disk is a socialist icon of the increasing Sun of freedom after the soldier of a blood-drenched battle against Pakistan.

The unique flag was developed by artist Quamrul Hassan. On 2nd March 1971, the preliminary edition of the flag was hoisted in Bangladesh at the Dhaka School. As the Vice Chief executive of Dhaka School Students’ Partnership (DUCSU), university student innovator A. S. M. Abdur Rab raised the flag for his country. On the announcement of Independence on 1971, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman raised the flag.

The flag was created to remove the crescent and the star regarded as signs of Pakistan. According to Flags of the World, the green used in the flag does not signify the conventional colors of Islam, as opposed to some western resources (such as the CIA World Reality Book). Rather, the green color was selected to signify the lushness of the green scenery of Bangladesh. The present flag appears like the flag of Asia with the qualifications of a different color.

The map was eliminated from the flag in 1972. One purpose given was the problems manufacturing the flag properly with map on it.
