Surrounded by seas, 
We spoke an indo-European language,
With the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, 
Persepolis as my capital,
At my height, I controlled from southeastern Europe to the Hindu Kush Plateau and the Indus. 
River in southwestern Asia, 
I am from where the mightiest empire of its time came along 
From where Cyprus the great captured Babylon,
Conquered people can keep their religion 
Keep their laws,
I’m from where the Royal Road came along, 
Trade grew from our roads, 
I’m from a polytheistic culture, 
Where Zoroaster changed our religious outlook.

Green, for life; 
Of reason, faith.
White to cease, 
Red for blood,
The price you paid.

The shape of the emblem is chosen to resemble a tulip,
In memory of those humans who died, 
Mythology says those humans who died, 
A red rose from their grave is besides,
