Short History of The National Holiday 2019

Marking the separation of what was East Pakistan and Pakistan, Bangladesh Independence Day 2019, is a national holiday celebrated on 26 March.



On that date in 1971, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman signed a declaration making East Pakistan the sovereign and independent country of Bangladesh

It sparked the nine-month-long Bangladesh Liberation War which claimed the lived of between 300,000 to 3 million people, although the casualty figures are disputed. Millions more were displaced.

Towards the end of the war, India invaded East Pakistan in support of the East Pakistani people and their forces.

This led more than 93,000 Pakistani troops to surrender – the largest number since World War II.



On 16 December 1971, East Pakistan officially became the independent country of Bangladesh.

Google are marking the national holiday with a doodle, which features an illustration of men in boats, nodding to Bangladesh’s many rivers.

Bangladesh Independence Day is marked in the country with parades, concerts and often speeches.

In the capital city of Dhaka, many government buildings are lit up in red and green, the national colors.

As the two colors that make up the national flag, the green symbolises Bangladesh’s flora and the red circle represents the sun rising over the relatively new country.

Today’s Doodle celebrates Independence Day in Bangladesh, the South Asian nation situated on the Bay of Bengal and a deltaic nation with almost 700 rivers flowing through it!



On this day in 1971, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, often titled Bangabandhu (which translates to “friend of Bengal”), signed a declaration that made the former East Pakistan the sovereign and independent country of Bangladesh with its own unique language and culture. This founding document followed Bangabandhu’s historic speech, delivered on March 7.

A public holiday in Bangladesh, Independence Day is commemorated with parades, fairs, and concerts as well as patriotic speeches. A festive spirit fills the capital city of Dhaka, where the Bangladesh flag flies proudly, and many government buildings are lit up with the national colors: green and red. The green symbolizes Bangladesh’s abundant flora and the potential of the nation’s youth while the red circle in the middle of the flag represents the sun rising over the relatively new and developing country.
