Drawing: "Green" started it, White and Red will finish it

Drawing: "Green" started it, White and Red will finish it
by KavehAhangarAdel

Each person's faith in religion is deeply personal it SHOULD not reflect
politics of a country. Nor should a sacred religion be used to oppress, especialy Islam which is the religion of peace.  Unfortnately, religion has always and will most likely continue to be used by those in power to create divisions and animosity toward other points of view.  Freedom, peace and equality should be in the center of the NEW
FLAG of Iran. Green, White and Red.. no more no less! I salute all of
the Brave souls in Iran. The "green"movement started the process but now it is just a matter of time and the true colors of our people will shine, the green, the white and the red.  I am proud to call myself Iranian. And I respect
them for ALL of their beliefs despite differences in faith.

I revisit my drawing from December 7th, 2009.

I appreciate your passionate point of view.  We learn much from our history and we hope to improve who we are. Derafsheh Kaviani was and to this day is regarded as a revolutionary symbol. The new Iran must encompass that rich heritage and much more..... much more.

Real flag

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


of Iranshahr is Darafseh Kaviani. No other flag is as beautiful; good or true to our nature. We have abandoned our Sassanid heritage for too long. The only way to greatness is to accept our identity with open arms and welcome it.

That identity goes right to the Sassanids and Darafseh Kaviani.



Nature abhors a vaccum

by KavehAhangarAdel on

So, I KNOW that it will be filled. 

@fooladi:  The repair or the the content or icon of that repair will be at the discretion of  our people who live there, who have always fought for their rights to be FREE and to have EQUALITY regardless of certain belief system, creed, language or political affiliation.

@ Darius: agree. Alas, the Republic of my imagination is quite limited in comparison to the people who live in IRAN. I would love to see them represented in the heart of our flag.

Experience suggests that If you don't fill in the hole ...

by Darius Kadivar on

You risk to lose what it contains:


Which explains why you will need to cover the vaccum on your flag with something more appropriate:

I look forward to the day when Your Republic of Imagination Finally Joins My Empire of Dreams ;0) 



I interpret it as a small dent into oiur nationl flag

by fooladi on

Which can be easily patched over time. How visible the patch after the fix, would be a function of the repair operation..... 



by KavehAhangarAdel on

You didn't read too much into it.  It is open to interpretation.  What do you think it signifies?

@Majid  thank you.



Beautiful sketch, Thank you Kaveh

by fooladi on

Just a question, what does the hole in the middle of the flag supposed to signify (f any) or am I trying to read too much into this?
