The health condition of Shib Narayan Das, the designer of the first national flag of Bangladesh, who is hospitalized, is still critical.

Shib Narayan Das is suffering from old age complications. He is receiving treatment at Samorita Hospital, Dhaka.

Antorjatik Bangla Bhasha Parishad (Bangladesh Branch) President Masud Karim and General Secretary Nasir Ahmed, along with some members of the organization went to the hospital to see the brave freedom fighter on Sunday. The organization also provided him with some financial support.

At the time, his wife said he was undergoing treatment under the supervision of thoracic specialist Prof Dr Rajashis Chakraborty. 

Dr ABM Harun, managing director of the hospital, is responsible for the overall supervision.

After staying in the ICU for four days, Shib Narayan Das was shifted to a cabin on Thursday.

With the beginning of the Liberation War in 1971, the map he designed had a yellow map of the new country in a red circle symbolizing the sun on a green background.

The flag was later redesigned by artist Kamrul Hasan on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s instruction.
