    The national flag of Pakistan was designed
    by Syed Amir uddin Hawaii and was
    based on the original flag of the Muslim League.


    It was adopted by the Constituent Assembly
    on August 11, 1947,
    just days before independence.
    The flag is referred to in the national anthem
    as Parcham-e-Sitāra-o-Hilāl in Urdu
    (lit. Flag of the Crescent and Star).


    The flag comprises a dark green field,
    representing the Muslim majority of Pakistan,
    with a vertical white stripe in the hoist,
    representing religious minorities.


    In the centre is a white crescent moon,
    representing progress,
    and a white five-pointed star,
    representing light and knowledge.
    The flag symbolizes Pakistan's
    commitment to Islam, the Islamic world,
    and the rights of religious minorities.
    The flag is flown on several important
    days of the year including Republic Day
    and Independence Day.


    The flag was designed by Muhammad Ali Jinnah,
    founder of the nation.


    It is associated with the flag used by the
    All-India Muslim League as an
    emblem of its aim of achieving
    an independent Muslim state.


    Their flag was green,
    with a central white star and crescent.
    At independence in 1947,
    a white stripe was added at the hoist
    to represent the state's minorities.
    The green and white together stand for
    peace and prosperity.


    The crescent symbolizes progress,
    and the star represents light and knowledge.
