The logo consists o fower crescents an a swuird. The fower crescents are meant tae staund for the wird Allah. The five pairts o the emblem seembolise the Principles o the Releegion. Abuin the swuird is a shadda: in Arabic script, this is uised tae double a letter. The shape o the emblem is chosen tae resemble a tulip, for the memory o the fowk who dee'd for Iran: it is an auncient belief in Iran, datin back tae meethology, that if a yung sodger dees patriotically a reid tulip will grow on his grave. In recent years it haes been considered the seembol o martyrdom.
The logo is encodit in Unicode, in the Miscellaneous Seembols range, at codepoint U+262B (☫) unner the name "FARSI SYMBOL". It is unclear why it wis includit in Unicode 1.0 syne technically it is a logo, no a character. It is no uised in Persian text an is no referred tae as "Persian seembol" ootside o the Unicode staundart.
