I was out and about in Dhaka and was pleased with the atmosphere.

Thanks for sharing your insights. I think the BD natok industry is not good as used to be back in the 90s. Not good actors/actresses and poor scripts. IMO i hear the movie industry has done slightly a bit better.

greats like Amjad Hossain passing away too

Lets not confuse them with Victory Day

Probably people born and breed outside have too much knowledge that they dont care perhaps care about such milestones, and you cant blame them really.

They dont get exposed to the hardship our country has gone through. There is much limitation one can comprehend from just reading.

STFU.

THIS is what WE know about independence. Published on Bijoy Bahar Magazine 2018 in California. Kiiiiiindly cut the cynicism, titkiri mara and ponditimara attitude, your IRRITATING snottiness and respect people for who they are.

A Vexillological Treatment of the flag of Bangladesh
ZEESHAN MAHMUD

It has been on Everest. It floods the stadium on days of triumph. It blazes proudly on prominent days, Independence Day and Victory Day.

But how much do we really know about our flag? Vexillology is the study of flag. Culling from various sources from the internet, here is the skinny on our flag distilled for you to expound on your next dinner table discussion!

Quamrul Hassan and Shib Narayan Das designed our flag. The initial design of the map was the branchild of Shib Narayan Das. Incidentally the first craftsman of the first national flag of Bangladesh-Das- was born on 16 December 1946.

Qumrul Hassan's father wasn't too keen in his pursuit of the arts being a conservative person. So it was decreed should he study art he must pay for his own tuition. He had cubist influence as well from Zainul Abedin. Perhaps his versatility is evidenced not only in his painting of Uki of gouche medium but the fact that he is also responsible for the design of Bangladesh Biman, Bangldesh Bank and Parjatan's monogram and logo.

On March 2, 1971, the original version was hoisted at Dhaka University for the first time. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman flew the flag in his residence on the declaration of Independence on 26 March 1971.

The map was deleted by order of General Abul Manzur. Most likely because of the difficulty in rendition on both sides. The red disc is intentionally offset so as to give the illusion it is in dead center when flying. The colour is bottle green to denote the lushness of the landscape as opposed to the traditional green that represents Islam. The red displays the bloodshed of our fellow men that paved away to Independence as well as symbolic of a rising nation in the form of sun.

According to a Protom Alo publication, the first version of the flag was engineered by "a section of student leaders and activists of Swadheen Bangla Nucleus on 6 June 1970, at room 108 of Iqbal Hall (now Sergeant Zahurul Haq hall), Dhaka University". The flag was made from clothes donated by Bazlur Rahman Lasker, the owner of Apollo Tailors, Dhaka New Market.

On 17 January 1972, the new design was made the official national flag of Bangladesh.

And as for a personal note, I was present myself in Bangladesh on 16th December 2013 watching on TV live how a World Record was approved by Guinness Book for the world's largest national flag, with 27,117 people present on National Parade Ground.
Yes. It has touched the summit of Everest. And maybe one day it will be seen on moon too. For sky is the limit for a nation of our possibities and future, brilliant young generation due to the immortals who died for our country.

Why do you have to butt in and spoil everything everytime? This was a genuine Q&A session for our young ones born abroad.

And, freshie, fix that attitude of yours. I will no longer tolerate you calling me names. Behave yourself or GTFO the forums.

I think let’s all embrace the essence of this momentous day when we were victorious to unite each other, not fight and divide.

I am sure both of you are up to the task.

its just a slogan. don't think it has pak origin. zindabad is used by indians too as hindustan zindabad and was also used during british revolt as inquilab zinbadad. in fact its a farsi word but has been a popular slogan in the subcontinent for centuries.

on topic, one can argue "awami" is also of pak origin as it is a urdu word. what many people don't know is awami league was not founded by sheikh mujib. It was created way before in 1949-50 by Bhashani and few other prominent leaders. But now everyone thinks (and maybe rightfully so) that AL is owned/dicatated by Sheikh family. Infact, AL has a very interesting beginning. Bhashani and fellow leaders predicted the friction very early and slowly paved the way during 50s and 60s until the eventual independence in 1971.

1971 didn't just happen in vacuum but the protest, organization, public sentiment and outrage which culminated in the greatest unity among bengalis required a lot of work. so its unfortunate that a lot of hard work by these leaders in 50s and 60s are forgotten now.

Spot on. Awami league was called Awami Muslim league when it was first founded.

Unfortunately this no longer happens. Have not seen it anywhere.
Kites are also no longer flown by kids these days. They spend too much time doing coaching after school. Even Class 6 er polapander key coaching kortey hoy.

The original name of Awami league was All Pakistan Awami Muslim League. It was a part of Pakistan Muslim League before but broke away from it in 1949. Not exactly sure when and why they have discarded Muslim from its name. Probably wanted to become a secular political party hence updating its name
