The flag is described as:
"...flag of INSM, the colors of the flag have been chosen from the Iranian oldest flag that during the Arab attack on Persian empire which calls Qadesiye war felt down from hands of Rostam Farrokhzad the commander of Persian empire Army. The name of this flag was Derafsh-e-Kaviani. It was made of a long rectangular leather apron as used by national hero Kaveh the ironsmith during the reign of King Fereidoun. Ferdosi the Persian “Homer” referred to this leather apron as the symbol of Iranian independence, resistance, resilience and the revolutionary momentum of the masses revolt against evil invaders. This flag was decorated with yellow, magenta and scarlet silk string tassels. Kaveh was later pronounced Kavak in Sassanid Pahlavi language meaning “glorious”, and so the Derafshe Kaviani was also called, the Glorious Flag of Iran. ...
