Download Picture of Iran Flag Outline for kids to color
The flag of Iran is a horizontal tricolor featuring three equal bands of green (top), white (middle), and red (bottom). In the middle band of the flag, the national emblem is placed.
Designed by Hamid Nadimi, the emblem is red in color and symbolizes the five principles of Islam.
The emblem is made up of four crescents with a sword in the center. The sword in the center represents the strength of the nation.
To the bottom of the green band and top of the red band, the Takbir is written twenty-two times in the Kufic script. The Takbir reads the phrase Allahu Akbar which translates into “God is greater than can be described.” The number twenty-two is significant as it refers to the Islamic Revolution that occurred on the twenty-second day of the eleventh month of the Iranian calendar.
The colors used in the Iranian flag date back to the period when the Shahs dominated the country. Green is a symbol of Islam and also represents hope and aspirations for a better future; white is a traditional symbol of peace; while red stands for the courage that the Iranians cherish.
The flag of Iran reflects the changes that the Islamic Revolution brought to the country. The flag was formally approved as the national flag on July 29, 1980.
