History flag Iran

One of the first signs of the sign of statehood in Iran was the word “Draft”, t.E. flag. This is an Iranian word that denotes a piece of matter attached to the head

Durata Kaviani

In the mythology of Iran “Deefosha Kaviaiani” exists in the uprising, in which the blacksmith was ruled with Kav name. His task was to fight harassment from Shah Zhakhaka. For an unfair board and the usurpation of their own subjects, Satan kissed him in the shoulder from which the snakes began to crawl. Based on this, it was called “Zakhak with a snake on the shoulder”. At least what day he brought snakes to the sacrifice in the form of heads of 2 people so that he himself did not eat.

Zakhar, among the second, sacrificed the snakes of the Seventeen Kava brothers. Collecting people near him against Zakhaka, Kav raised a spear above his head with a leather apron fixed on it. At the end of the destruction of the Palace of Zhakha, Freidin, a legitimate heir to the kings, was ascended on the throne of Iran. He saw in the apron of Kava’s sign of the good and gave an order to be on it a gold star with 4 rays and decorate precious stones and 3-color ribbons – red, gold and purple. And the past apron of the blacksmith was adjusted by the “Kava banner” either “Derange Kaviaani”, the flag of freedom.

At least as the next Shah, who was brought to the throne, I made another gem on the flag, so that in the night he sparkled in the light of the moon is even more convenient.

The four relevant stars gave steam Faridun 2nd name – “Akhtari Kavyan” or Kaviev Star. Later he became the municipal flag of Iran and was it for the family of Arshakids (250 g. to N.NS. – 224 g. N.NS.) and Sassanid dynasty (224 g. – 651 g.)

Achaemenid Empire

The introduction of banners and flags in the era of the Board of Ahemenides finds a personal confirmation in Greek writers and notes of historians Greece. Xenophon (427 – 355 BC.E) In his own book, the book about Kire wrote about the signs and flags, which were stirred on the tents of the Iranian commander. They differed from each other. And the messengers had the opportunity not to be confused, looking for the order of Cyrus of a suitable leader.

Not counting this, the Shahinshha had a banner of the central power, which was placed on the throne of Shah. During the movement of the armies, it was walked in the middle of them.

On a pile attached to a duct, the red banner of Shainshakhov, the family of Ahemenidov, was drawn by a golden eagle wing. He kept in every paw on one golden crown. The canvas itself was bounded by small tricolor triangles – red, white, green colors. Similar flags were before the coming to power of this family remained at the end of it.

Upstairs was a golden eagle, unfolding wings and holding a golden ball in the claws of each paw (Achaemenids).

Sasanid Empire

The family of Persians Sassanida (224 – 651 GG.), led a personal family on the one hand from the Achaemenids, on the other – from the Kaianid family. Based on this, inherited as a symbol of statehood, the flag of the “Cavan dirathoshi” flag – a four-graded cloth with a four-beam star on a tree, wagon which gold image of an eagle.

On the border of the white strip, at the top and bottom, the Old Arabic Vita passes. In translating the phrase, written 22 times testifies “Allah Akbar”. 22 – not a random number. It is refused to the Islamic revolution, which happened 22 days 11 months (22 Bachman) on the Iranian calendar.

Colored strips – this is a reflection of configurations, through what Iran passed at the end of the Islamic revolution. Three colors were stirred on the flag of Iran at first the XX century, but the center was the ancient-perceived symbol – the lion with the blade.

At the end of the revolution, instead of Leo, they were located in the emblem with a blade and 4 crescents.

Previously, three colors of the flag symbolized the base of the Iranian society, three full free estates:

  • Religious ministers have raised white as an indicator of holiness, purity of their thoughts, and peace on Earth.
  • Valorous fighters, ready to sacrifice fate for fragments, personified red, as a blood color, spilled in the war. Military to know recognized the most revered and respectable.
