DK Flag Book 1997 gives the symbolics of the emblem (which is the state arms) as follows:

  • The four stars represent nationalism, socilaism, democracy, and secularism.
  • The plant between the tow group of stars is a sprig of jute.
  • The plant in the middle of the emblem is a 'shapla' (winter [it should be water according to Smith] lily) on stylized waves. According to Smith, the waves recall rivers, the national transportation network
  • A wreath of padi rice is surrounding the 'shapla'.
The name of the state in Bangla is written below the emblem.

Album 2000 gives the flag with a brown background (approx. Pantone 492c, C 0 - M 75 - Y 65 - K 40) and a smaller emblem, of diameter approximately 60% of the flag height.
