IRI's incompetent job in taking out the green in our flag

IRI's incompetent job in taking out the green in our flag
by Ari Siletz

To the informed eye, the white and red stripes in our flag actually contain quite a bit of green. This is for the edification of the IRI "artists" who simple mindedly replace just the green stripe in our flag with a blue stripe. The above photos show a few examples of Iran with ALL the green replaced by blue. Can't those guys get anything right?

I hear you Darius

Digeh shooresh ro dar avordan. I am hoping that as the odds of success against the regime continue to rise, diverse oppositions are encouraged towards long-term unity in a democracy. Tall order, but we can afford the alternatives even less.

Nice Job Ari But it wasn't an Iranian Flag in the first place ..

by Darius Kadivar on

When I hear the IRI speaking of Armanhayeh Melli it makes me laugh each and every time.

Personally a regime that has only been promoting a nihilistic notion of everything our country has stood for and mocks religion and the humanistic values it is supposed to guarantee to the extent of endorsing the executions of young and innocent lives, or calling the US president a Nigger as did the head of Iran's judiciary Larijani, I wonder if the Flag of the IRI been anything but a cameleon kalideoscope that only reflects the stupidity upon which this Republic was founded in the first place.

It is no more about Green, White or Red or now Blue, Left or Right, Republican or Monarchist but about reclaiming back our genuine selves without shame or hypocritical schizophrenia that makes us always have to be apologetic whenever we refer to our past or national symbols regardless of our individual political or ideological preferences.

My Humble Opinion,




Cool Ari!

You know your colors too besides everything else :o)

I used to have a pair of sunglasses that messed up the greens for me. Those may come in contact lenses nowadays.


Thanks Ari,

Don't know your color illustration was more genius or the comment to Sargord but I did appreciate both.



No more green

Thanks Ari Jaan for making this clear. I like the second picture with Ghormeh Banafsh and Koukou Sourati.

Thanks for making it foolproof. Although apparently even foolproof seems to completely go over some people's head. :) I guess not everybody can be helped. 


Thanks Ari :)

Sargord, your avatar wears a military uniform. Defend the whole nation  and its symbols, or change into a private security guard outfit.

Very Well Put :)

Nice job Ari :)

Well, Ari, what you've done

by Sargord Pirouz on

Well, Ari, what you've done with this color manipulation is to effectively demonstrate that the object of the IRNA logo color replacement on the IRI flag was not to replace the color green, visually, from every aspect of the artistic rendering.

Good job, I guess. But isn't this perfectly obvious, especially given that the object of the rendering has been perfectly well explained in two previous threads?

But what am I thinking? The anti-Iran cheerleading must go on! 

Rah! Rah! Rah!- everything is bad!

Thank you for the side-by-side illustration......the world looks gloomy, fuzzy, and out of balance when green is replaced by blue....
