Flag of Pakistan 🇵🇰

Flag of Pakistan

At first glance, the flag of Pakistan 🇵🇰 suggests that Pakistan is a Muslim state. A rectangular leaf carries two traditional symbols of Islam on a green background - a white crescent and five-pointed star, where the crescent indicates progress and the star stands for knowledge and light. The white stripe on the left side of the flag is supposed to represent Pakistani minorities (Hindus, Christians, and Buddhists), and thus indirectly expresses religious tolerance in the country. White, together with the green color, also marks peace and prosperity. The flag was inspired by the flag of All-India Muslim League, which pushed for the division of British India into two separate states in 1947 - Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan.
