Meaning & SymbolismBangladesh flags have a dark green field with a red disc that is slightly offset from the center. The disc represents the sun rising over the country, and its red color is intended to represent the blood that the people of Bangladesh shed during their war of independence. The green field stands for the lushness of the land of Bangladesh and the eternal youth of Bangladeshis.
Description and Brief History

The Bangladesh flag Like many national flags, it originated as a revolutionary banner during the nation's war for independence, and has been used as the Bangladesh flag ever since that war concluded. The national flag of Bangladesh was adopted officially on 17 January 1972. It is based on a similar flag used during the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971. The map was later deleted from the flag by the order of General Abul Manzur, most likely to simplify the design. A red disc is on top of the green field, offset slightly toward the hoist so that it appears centred when the flag is flying. The red disc represents the sun rising over Bengal, and also the blood of those who died for the independence of Bangladesh. The green field stands for the lushness of the land of Bangladesh.
