"Iran Khodro Industrial Group (in Persian: ایران خودرو), also known as IKCO,
is the leading Iranian vehicle manufacturer. The company's original name was
Iran National. IKCO was founded in 1962. IKCO manufactures vehicles, including
Samand, Peugeot and Renault cars, and trucks, minibuses and buses."
Its flag is the logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_Khodro#mediaviewer/File:Iran_Khodro_logo.svg) on a dark blue background horizontal flag, as seen here: http://www.ikcopress.com/UploadedFiles/Permanent/Thumbnail/xh4n43fdps.JPG (source: http://www.ikcopress.com/EN/News.aspx?docID=10475).

The image above is an initial attempt to draw the IKCO corporate flag, using
the description and links provided. For this one, I literally placed the logo in
white on a dark blue field. However, looking at the photograph in the link you
provided, it appears that there's something else on the flag, too. Perhaps a
white ring around the logo? Unfortunately, with the flag draped on the staff as
it is in the photo, it's hard to tell.
