New card launched to mark 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence

Standard Chartered Bangladesh (SCB) is marking the 50th year of Bangladesh’s independence with a limited edition Standard Chartered platinum credit card.

The bank will donate funds to the Liberation War Museum for every card activated, and cardholders will be entitled to have their names registered in the list of the museum’s donors and enjoy other exclusive privileges, said a press release.

The issuance of the commemorative credit card is a celebration of national independence and the achievements made during 50 years of independent Bangladesh.

Standard Chartered had commissioned Dhaka Yeah to design the limited-edition credit card artwork.

The artist’s portrayal of Bangladesh’s national pride—the Royal Bengal Tiger in its natural habitat, the Sundarbans—is a symbolic representation of the nation’s resilience and fierce determination to rise above all adversities and march forward.

“The commemorative card is an expression of our gratitude, solidarity and pride in the historic achievements of the countless freedom fighters, whose selfless sacrifice made possible the dream of Bangladesh. We are grateful to be able to partner with the Liberation War Museum, an institution which is playing an indispensable role in preserving the memories of both the human tragedies and heroism of our Liberation War and its ideals," said Naser Ezaz Bijoy, CEO of SCB.

“The Royal Bengal Tiger depicted in the Card embodies the spirit of Bangladesh: determined, independent and resilient. This is the spirit that see us poised to make the great leap forward—just like the tiger in the illustration—defeating the adversities of the pandemic," he added.

In addition to a wide range of benefits offered by the Standard Chartered Platinum Credit Card, the commemorative card will offer the following exclusive privileges:

  • Free access to visit the galleries of the museum for Cardholder along with (upto) four companions during each visit
  • Special guided tour for Cardholders and companions during visit upon advance booking
  • Access to the library and research wing of the museum
  • 10% discount on the purchase of books and CDs published by the Museum
  • Exclusive virtual tour of the museum
  • Regular updates about the events and special exhibition organised by the museum.
