Photorealistic Flag of Bangladesh

Designed by Quamrul Hassan, the flag of Bangladesh was adopted on 17th January 1972. Originally, a flag with a golden map of the country was used, however this design was abandoned for the reasons of simplification. Thus, the flag is made up of a green field with a red disc. However, the disc is not placed exactly on the centre of the flag, but shifted slightly to the left, which creates an illusion that the disc is actually located on the middle when the flag is raised. The disc stands for sun rising over the nation, and the green background symbolises the fertile landscape or lush land of the country.
