Our national flag is the symbol of our independence and
sovereignty. It is rectangular in size. There is a red circle in the midst of
green. The ratio of the length and width of the is 10:6. Red and green colors
are used in it. They symbolize that the martyrs who laid down their lives for
the freedom of our country are evergreen. Late artist Kamrul Hasan designed it.
It is hoisted of different national occasions. It was first raised on the
premises of the University of Dhaka on the 2nd March, 1971. The design of that flag was a little
bit different earlier. Our national flag represents our national identity. To
show due respect and honour to our national flag is our bounden duty.
