The logo for the 50th anniversary of the founding of Bangladesh shows a gestural symbolization of the number fifty. Two hands are raised in jubilation, a tribute to the importance of the hand in dance and culture. The splayed fingers of one make the five, the thumb and index finger of the other make the zero - at the same time the international symbol for OK.
Stylistically, the graphics are based on the customary rickshaw paintings, as well as on the tradition of the mehndi, a term for the artistic, ornamental body painting with henna. The imaginative patterns on the hands of the logo together form the suggestive face of the Bengal tiger, the heraldic animal of Bangladesh.
