Following the revolution of 1906, the colours of Iran were adopted for the national flag in the form of horizontal stripes. The colours of the Iranian flag are traditional, probably dating from at least the 18th century and are said to represent the Islamic religion (green), peace (white), and courage (red). The flag's centrepiece formerly comprised a lion with a sword standing before a rising sun, with a crown above.
The revolution of 1979 resulted in the centrepiece being changed to the new coat of arms. The arms consist of four crescents and a sword and together symbolized a globe to indicate the worldwide struggle of oppressed people. The five parts of the emblem together also constitute a graphic rendition of the word "Allah", and symbolize the five principles of Islam. Above the sword is a "tashdid". In Arabic writing this is used to double a letter, here it doubles the strength of the sword.Contact us to purchase
