Flag of Bangladesh 🇧🇩

Flag of Bangladesh

The flag of Bangladesh 🇧🇩 was adopted on 17th January 1972 and it is very similar to the Japanese flag (except for the green background). Originally, a flag with a golden map of the country was used, however this design was abandoned for the reasons of simplification. Thus, the flag is made up of a green leaf with a red circle. However, the circle is not placed exactly in the center of the flag, but it is shifted slightly to the left, which creates an illusion that the circle is actually located in the middle when the flag is raised. The circle stands for the beginning of independence or for the sun rising over the Bay of Bengal. The green background symbolizes the local fertile landscape and also it is also a traditional color of Islam.
