Flags of the World: Bangladesh Flag

The Bangladesh flag was officially adopted on January 17, 1972 and was designed by Kamrul Hasan. Its simplistic design of a red circle on a green background was chosen on purpose. The current flag is based on a similar flag that was used during the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, which had a yellow map of the country inside the red disc. However, this additional detail was deleted because it was nearly impossible to render the image perfectly on both sides of the flag.

The color green represents the beautiful greenery of Bangladesh, vivacity, and youthfulness. This color detail also represents the traditional color of Islam. The red disc symbolizes the rising sun and the blood shed by the men of Bangladesh in working to achieve the country’s independence.
