History an seembolism[eedit | eedit soorce]

Afore the Seicont Warld War, Muslims an Hindus lived thegither unner the Breetish Raj. A nummer 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, whauras the white stripe represents releegious minorities.[5] In the centre, the crescent an starn seembolise progress an licht respectively.[5] The banner seembolizes Pakistan's commitment tae Islam, the Islamic warld, an the richts o releegious minorities.[6] 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.
