DK Flag Book 1997 gives the symbolics of the emblem (which is the state arms) as follows:
Comparing the image here and a photo of the real thing at http://www.jatiyaparty.org/images/album/ershad.jpg , you may note differences in the shades of the emblem.

At http://www.virtualbangladesh.com/bd_flag.html this flag is presented without description, and I'd say it is really brownish or dark red. Furthermore, in this site the BD Presidential Flag has the emblem in red on a yellow disk and it has not the name of the state written below.

I had a contact in Bangladesh, a librarian in Prime Minister's Office on 18 Jun 2001:
'Thank you for your interest about our Presidential flag. Your sent flag's golden Emblem (President's Crest) is correct but the background in wrong. The original Instruction is given bellow,
The Personal Standard will be in dark carmine colour and rectangular in size in the proportion of length to width 10:6 bearing Golden National Emblem (President's Crest) on the body of the colour. The National Emblem (within a
circle) will have a radius of one -fifth of the length of standard and the horizontal line drawn through the middle of its width.
a) The dark carmine colour base of the Standard will be of PROCION BROWN-H 3R 4.0% (I.C.I.)
b) The National Emblem (President's Crest) will be Bright Gold Colour.
II. Size of the Standard for building:
a) 10 Fetes by 6 fetes
b) 5 Fetes by 3 fetes

Depending upon size of the building.
III. Size of the standard for aircraft : 12.5 fetes by 1.5 fetes
IV. Size for the standard for Car: 12.5 inches by 7.5 inches.
Golden Crest means Presidential Monogram which will be golden coloured."
I have renewed contact with him/her again, to gain info about any potential change (inscription - name of president - may be omitted).
