History an seembolism[edit | edit source]
Afore the Seicont Warld War, Muslims an Hindus lived thegither unner the Breetish Raj. A number o the Muslims formed the All Indie Muslim League. Efter the Seicont Warld War, when the partition o Indie led tae the creation o Dominion o Pakistan, the banner o the Muslim League served as the basis for the banner o Pakistan.
The green represents the majority Muslim community in Pakistan, whereas the white stripe represents releegious minorities. In the centre, the crescent and star symbolize progress and light respectively. The banner seembolizes Pakistan's commitment tae Islam, the Islamic warld, an the richts o releegious minorities. It is based on the oreeginal banner o the Muslim League, which itself drew inspiration frae the banner o the Sultanate o Delhi an the Mughal Empire in Indie.
