10th Independence Anniversary August 14, 1957. (1957-3)



During the past ten years, many sets of stamps were issued on August 14, but none of those stating to be commemorating the Independence Day. However, three stamps released this year, were clearly indicated as an Independence issue.
Rather intricate design having many elements put together mainly projecting \'development\' in various fields. Industrial units are shown; Sui Gas Plant, Adamjee Jute Mills, Karnaphuly Paper Mill and Zeal Pak Cement Factory.
A small plant with a single flower on a stem is shown with date 14 Aug 1947 and another one with ten roses has date 14 Aug 1957 to express the growth of the country. An aeroplane is also seen flying above them but below the name of the country in English. The value 1½ anna is in blue, 4anna in orange and 12a is mauve. De La Rue printed the stamps in recess process in half million quantity of each value. On 13-2-1958 the stamps were withdrawn.
