The top band of color (Green) in the Iranian Flag represents Islam (the religion) and is being used symbolically by the political supporters of  former prime minister Mir Hossein Mousavi who are protesting the results of the 12 June 2009 presidential election in Iran.  These supporters claim that the current Iranian government led by the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stole the election from Mousavi in favor of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the current President of Iran.


The Boston Globe has published many excellent photographs of the recent protests in Tehran: http://tr.im/pmkW

  1. Thanks for your support.
    please use a simple Iranian flag of Green/White/Red, with no Allah word or Arabic letter at edges.

  2. Thanks, I’m looking for a simple Iranian flag without the other symbols. I can only find these on Wikipedia.

    Would the 1964 – 1980 flag from the Pahlavi Dynasty with the lion in the center be more appropriate?

    Anyone have a simple Green + White + Red flag?

  4. Iranian people have become an example for people in other countries that live under dictatorships.

    Cubans inside and outside the country admire the people of Iran, and Cubans and Cuban blogs and forums are following with attention the situation.

  5. Ray, I feel so fortunate to know you! I aspire to emulate you! My brother in law of blessèd memory was an emigré from Iran. Most of his entire family is still trapped in the clutches of that mad, completely insane regime. He and my sister were blessed with 3 children, all of whom carry Iranian surnames and have hosts of relatives that they have never met. The last time that they saw their Iranian grandparents was at my brother-in-law’s funeral- over a decade ago. They had to bribe everyone and everything just to get out for a brief visit. They were forced to return because of their other children and grandchildren back in Iran. Who knows what is happening to them now? I worry about them and all the Iranian people. Russell

    • I saw yesterday the movie Persepolis.
      I strongly recommed it for those that would like to know the recent history of Iran in a very quick, entertaining and informative way.
