While making such yummylicious desserts do not forget the actual symbol of green and white in your flag. Green symbolizes the majority while white symbolizes the minority. Do not forget to be kind to your minority. Remember the message of Quaid-e-Azam Muhamad Ali Jinnah where he urges the nation to safeguard the rights of minority.

Decoration

Buy flags, decorate your car, homes and any other place you want to but remember to respect and take care of the green color even after 14th August. Not everything should be done for the sake of show off. It is our pride. The national flag was designed by Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, and was based on the original flag of the Muslim League. It was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on 11 August 1947, just days before independence.

The flag is referred to in the national anthem as Parcham-e-Sitāra-o-Hilāl. It comprises a dark green field representing the Muslim majority of Pakistan with a vertical white stripe in the hoist, representing religious minorities. However, in the center is a white crescent moon, representing progress, and a white five-pointed star, representing light and knowledge. The flag symbolizes Pakistan’s commitment to Islam, the Islamic world and the rights of religious minorities.

Read about National Heroes

On THIS BIG DAY DO NOT FORGET to remember all the heroes who gave their lives for our independence. The least we can do is read about them and tell our little ones about them. It is important to keep them alive in our hearts as they have done a lot for us. If it was not for them, we would not have a separate homeland to practice our religion. Try to search as much information you can about our heroes. Although the creation of Pakistan was not a result of a war but we should also shed light on the soldiers who are keeping it secure from external threats, who fought wars and still fighting just to keep our country safe and peaceful. They have continued to sacrifice their today for our tomorrow.

So, have an amazing Independence Day of Pakistan on 14 August.

PAKISTAN ZINDABAD.
