The Red & Green National Flag Of Bangladesh was Officially adopted On 17 January 1972. The flag consists of a red disc on top of a green field. The red disc is offset slightly toward the hoist so that it appears centered when the Flag Of Bangladesh is flying.
The background color symbolizes the greenery of Bangladesh with its vitality and youthfulness while the red disc on the Bangladesh National Flag represents the rising sun and the sacrifice of people made to obtain its independence. The flag was designed by painter Quamrul Hassan.
Origin Of The Flag
The first National Flag Of Bangladesh was designed by a student named Kazi Aref Ahmed, ASM Abdur Rab, Shahjahan Siraj, Manirul Islam (Marshal Moni), Swapan Kumar Choudhury, Quamrul Alam Khan Khasru, Hasanul Haq Inu, and Yousuf Salahuddin Ahmed. The flag was made from clothes donated by Bazlur Rahman Lasker, the owner of Apollo Tailors, Dhaka New Market.
The design bore a red disk in the center with a gold silhouette map of East Pakistan. When Mujibur Rahman (Sheikh Mujib), the leader of the Awami League, spoke out in favor of Bengali autonomy in March 1971, the new Flag Of Bangladesh was displayed behind him. Pakistan soon undertook repressive measures and arrested Mujib, who responded by calling upon Bengalis to proclaim independence.
With the support of Indian troops in December, Bangladesh was successful in their struggle, and a new government was proclaimed in January. The New Bangladesh National Flag is based on a similar flag used during the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, which had a yellow map of the country inside the red disc. In 1972 this map was removed from the Flag Of Bangladesh.
