The people of Pakistan celebrate March 23 every year with great zeal and enthusiasm.
This day commemorates the most outstanding achievement of the Muslims of the subcontinent who passed the historic Pakistan Resolution on this day in 1940 at Minto Park (Iqbal Park), Lahore.
This formal political resolution resulted in the creation of ‘Pakistan’.
On this day, Pakistan’s national flag is hoisted on public and governmental buildings at dawn and a change of guard takes place at the mausoleums of Allama Iqbal and Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Quaid-e-Azam), followed by the placing of garlands.
The main feature of Pakistan Day celebrations is a parade at Constitution Avenue in Islamabad.
In an annual ceremony, the President also presents military and civilian awards in recognition of the recipients’ achievements and contributions towards their country
Minar-e-Pakistan, the tower which stands in Lahore’s Iqbal Park, marks the site where the resolution was passed on March 23, 1940.
The national monument symbolises a blossoming flower and reflects the blissfulness of independence.
