Shine on Bangladesh 4

by ermemi

For my check pattern designs, I used the emblem and the colours of the flag of Bangladesh.

In the emblem, there is a stylized Lotus flower, which is the symbol of Sun. Lotus flower is also known as the allegoric of the water, the creation, the soul; the birth of life, the development of the mind.

The colour green, which expresses hope; is the colour of spring, the renewing of nature.
Blue is the colour of the sky, the sea, the infinity, the transcendency, the intellectum, calmness.
Yellow is the eternal light, the colour of power, the connection between humanity, and God.
Red is the colour of vitality, fire and passion.

People are at the mercy of the power of nature. They realized very early, that the warmth and the light is given by the Sun.
In my designs, I tried to symbolize Hope with a motive of the Sun, using different, meaningful colours.

Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world, it deserves to be shined by the sun.
