The flag of Bangladesh was officially adopted on January 17, 1972, following the country's independence from Pakistan. The flag is made up of a green leaf with a red circle, which is slightly shifted to the left, creating the illusion that the circle is actually located in the middle when the flag is raised.
The red circle on the flag is a symbol of the beginning of independence or the sun rising over the Bay of Bengal. The green background represents the country's fertile landscape and its ties to Islam, which is the dominant religion in Bangladesh.
The flag of Bangladesh is similar to the flag of Japan, with both flags featuring a white circle on a colored background. However, the flag of Bangladesh has a green background and a red circle, while the flag of Japan has a white background and a red circle.
