The two countries are hosting a ‘Maitree Diwas’ logo and backdrop design competition

Bangladesh and India will jointly celebrate “Maitree Diwas” (Friendship Day) in 18 countries on December 6, marking 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence and 50th anniversary of Bangladesh-India diplomatic relations.

On December 6, 1971, India recognized an independent Bangladesh, borne out of the nine-month-long struggle of the Bangalee people for liberation from oppression, for a life of freedom.

To cherish this landmark day in history, the two friendly countries are hosting a “Maitree Diwas” logo and backdrop design competition.
