The flag of Pakistan features a green field with a vertical white stripe on the left side, which symbolizes the country’s minorities and religious minorities. The green color represents Islam, the nation’s majority religion, as well as prosperity and progress. Centered within the green field is a white crescent moon. A five-pointed star accompanies it, both of which are symbols of progress and light. The crescent represents progress, while the star represents knowledge and light.
Adopted on August 14, 1947, the flag embodies Pakistan’s Islamic heritage. It reflects its struggles for independence and its aspirations for unity, faith, and discipline.
