The flag of Pakistan consists of a dark green field with a white vertical stripe on the left side of the flag. The green color represents the Muslim majority in Pakistan, while the white stripe represents religious minorities and symbolizes peace and truth. In the center of the green field is a crescent moon and a five-pointed star, both in white. The crescent moon represents progress and development, while the five-pointed star represents light and knowledge. Together, the crescent moon and the star are traditional symbols of Islam.
