The National Flag was first introduced by the leaders of the Western Baluchistan in 1960, in Egypt,Romania and later in Iraq for the National Front for the Liberation of Western Baluchistan to representthe Baluch Nation in their struggle for independence and free Baluchistan from the illegal domination,oppression and occupation of the Persian tyrant kings. It was subsequently presented to the membersof the international delegation at the peace conferences that devised a plan for Baluch Nationindependence. Under the same flag the Baluch leaders announced the formation of the first "BaluchiGovernment in Exile" in 1961 in Egypt and fought a drawn-out war until 1972, in order to revive theBaluch Nation national independence, lost since 1415.In 1961 and the creation of the Government of Baluchistan, the old "Chakari flag" which was redwith the picture of a black panther, the new one was adopted by its parliament as the official Flag of the government of Baluchistan in the country and abroad. Following these historic background, theNational Flag is widely adopted in Greater Baluchistan anonymously and has been set aloft by variousBaluchi political parties and entities in all sectors of the Baluchistan and abroad. The Flag of graterBaluchistan has thus been consecrated by the blood of all Baluch martyrs patriots of this century, fromtens of thousands who fell in defending the independence movement under the new government andleadership. The flag was aloft when Nasir was immolated in 1960; it was aloft when wounded Baluchon stretchers were placed before the firing squads under cruel Iranian Shah rules; it was aloft whenBaluch civilians were gassed in their hundreds in villages in Aahurran and Zardkouh in Baluchistan;it was aloft when hundreds of Baluch innocent were driven from their villages and towns that havebeen set alight since 1958-59; and, it remains aloft everywhere today more than 5 decades after theloss of Baluchistan independence–when Baluch are redoubling their perennial struggle to regain theirdignity and equality with other nations by reviving their right to choose the course of their own future.
