The white stripe symbolizes the country's religious minorities and its commitment to religious tolerance. The white crescent and star are common symbols on Islamic flags, representing progress and light. Together, these elements reflect Pakistan's Islamic identity, its commitment to pluralism, and its aspiration for peace, progress, and unity among its diverse population.
