Language, Handwriting, Calendar and Flag of Iran

According to the Constitution of the I.R.Iran, the common official language and handwriting (alphabet) is Farsi (Persian) language. The starting point for official Iranian calendar is the flight of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in 622AD, which marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar. The first of Farvardin (March 21) is the beginning of the New Year in Iran according to the solar calendar.

Iranian official flag is green, white, and red with the sign of I.R.Iran and also with 22 Allah-O-Akbar (God is Great) in its margins. More than half of the people in Iran speak Farsi (Persian) language and various Persian dialects.
The Persian language has its own eloquence and versatility. Consequently, some of the most outstanding literature in oriental countries, especially in the realm of Iranian culture, from Transoxiana to Asia Minor, has been written in Farsi. The rich Iranian culture and the Persian language impressed many tribes of Central Asia, in spite oftheir domination over geographical realm of Iran, for a short time.
