Civil Air Ensign

[Civil Air Ensign of Pakistan]
by Calvin Paige Herring

The Civil Air Ensign of Pakistan is similar to other former British colonies that have adopted British forms of flag use. If I am not mistaken, the designer or designers of the new Pakistani Civil Air Ensign knew a bit about vexillology because they did not adopt a cross version. Instead, the vertical blue and white bars were left probably because such a Christian symbol, the cross, would be inappropriate for an Islamic country.

Calvin Paige Herring, 17 February 1998
