    The crescent on the Flag represents progress.
    The five-rayed star represents light and knowledge.

    The flag comprises a dark green field (representing Muslims) with a vertical white stripe in the hoist (left side) (representing non-Muslim minorities). In the centre is a white crescent (symbolising progress) and a white five-pointed star (symbolising light, knowledge and wisdom).

    I hope that answers your question Rahen :)

    let's modify this question a little bit..
    Why were these symbols and colors chosen to represent these virtues and properties?

    According to Ancient and Heraldic traditions much symbolism is associated with colors. The colors on the Pakistan flag represent the following:

    White - peace and honesty & symbolizing the role of religious minorities

    Green - hope, joy and love and in many cultures have a sacred significance as in Pakistan where the color green is associated with Islam.The emblem on the Pakistan flag pictures traditional symbols of Islam

    The crescent, star, and color green are traditional symbols of Islam.
