Robi, one of the leading mobile operators of Bangladesh, has made the first digital flag of Bangladesh.
The operator took the initiative for the people who would be unable to participate in the world record of human national flag campaign physically and created a platform for them to virtually participate in making the first ever digital flag of the country.
Robi created a microsite – www.bdworldrecord.com – on the December 11 and after receiving a good response from online viewers, the operator had started the digital flag campaign on December 13. The flag was completed within three days on December 15. Participants were asked to go to the digital flag section of the website and click on two stated colors – red and green – for as many times as they wanted in order to complete the digital flag. It started with filling the red blocks of the flag. The release claimed that a total of 16,371 people participated in the three days and it took 2,103,630 clicks to complete the country’s first ever digital flag.
The participants had also expressed their feelings by posting messages regarding Victory Day. Viewers, all around the world, were requested to share their opinion on the theme “Why they want to be a part of this record breaking attempt.” In response, 660 people shared their feelings through the micro site. Currently, anyone can visit the microsite and witness the best wishes and the human flag. One of the wishes read “Thanks to Robi and all of the people who are making such a wonderful history for us… We are proud of our freedom fighters and we all respect our martyrs… Love you. @Bangladesh.”
