Odd Banknotes - 08 Bangladesh

Another odd note today, not special because of the size, and also not because of the face value (25 is not a special number), but the following commemorative note, is more or less celebrating itself...

Bangladesh' banknotes are printed by the Security Printing Corporation of Bangladesh.
The company was founded in 1988 and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013.
No better way to celebrate that anniversary with an own banknote.

The colours of this banknote is not that common either.
We see different shades of pink, purple, over light blue to white.
I haven't been eating funny mushrooms, but to me this note leaves a very pshychedelic impression.

If we look at the front side of the note, in a more detailed way, we see another odd thing :

In detail on the front side of the note : the National Martyr's Monument in Savar, Bangladeshi taka banknotes and postage stamps.
This is probably also the first time that 'stamps' are depicted on a banknote.

Two other symbols that can be found, are: three spotted deer, magpie robin (doyel) bird.

On the back side of the note, the Headquarters of the Security Printing Corporation are depicted in the same colours as the front side.

Overall, a weird banknote, that - due to the chosen colours - depict the own countries flag (green and red) in blue and pink.

Special thanks to my friend in Bangladesh who provided me these (and other) notes.
