Flag of Iran 🇮🇷

Flag of Iran

The flag of Iran 🇮🇷 is composed of three horizontal stripes of green, white, and red color. Traditionally, the green stands for Islam, white stripe, which is slightly wider, represents hope and peace, and the red stripe should provide courage in battles. These colors were adopted in 1907 already, but the central motif of the flag was until 1979, when Iran became the Islamic Republic, a lion with sword looking at the rising sun. Later, the lion was replaced by a red tulip motif, which is composed of five parts, each of which represents one pillar of Islam. The boundary between the green and white stripe and the red and white stripe is made of eleven inscriptions "God is great" in kufic script.
