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.

 

National Anthem

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.

The 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.

The Verses of the Anthem have been composed by a renowned poet of Pakistan,
Abul Asar Hafeez Jullundhri; while the tune has been composed by Ahmed G. Chagla, the well known musician and composer.

The Anthem written in Urdu is a unique poetical composition, as in spite of its brevity it is a lyrical exultation for the quintessence of Pakistan its Islamic foundation, ideology, ethos, aspirations and its intrinsic strength.

 

Following is the Roman Wording:


Pak sarzamin shad bad
Kishware haseen shad bad


Tunishane azmealishan arze Pakistan
Markazeyaqin shadbad.

Pak sarzamin ka nizam quwate akhuwati awam
Qaum, mulk, Sultanat
Painda ta binda bad, shad bad man zele murad.


Parchame sitarao hilal
Rahbare tarraqio ka mal
Tarjumane mazishane hal jane istaqbal
Sayyai, khudae zul jalal.


Following is the English Wording:



Blessed be the sacred Land
Happy be the bounteous realm
Symbol of high resolve

Blessed be thou citadel of faith

The order of this sacred land
Is the might of the brotherhood of the People
May the nation, the country, and the state
Shine in glory everlasting
Blessed be the goal of our ambition

This Flag of the Crescent and Star
Leads the way to progress and perfection

Interpreter of our past, glory of our present
Inspiration of our future
