Historically, the Pakistan flag has associations with hoists at Dacca on December 30,1906, when a meeting of Muslim Political Leaders of the Indo-Pak Sub-Continent was held and the all India Muslim league was formed. The flag used at Dacca was green in color with a white crescent and star in the center. When the constituent Assembly of Pakistan met on August 11,1947 The first Prime Minister of Pakistan, Liaquat Ali Khan presented the National flag for approval.
The National Anthem of Pakistan approved by the Government in August 1954, is a harmonious rendering of a three-stanza composition with a tune based on eastern music but arranged in such a manner that it can be easily played by foreign bands.
Anthem is evocative in spirit, extolling Pakistan as the centre of faith
and freedom, a land of beauty and strength drawn from the people and the
country. The words touch upon the various facets of national life, with an
invocation for integrity o Pakistan.
