About the flag

The Iran Aviation Industries Organization (IAIO) (Persian: سازمان صنایع هوایی ایران‎) was established in 1966 for the purpose of planning, controlling, and managing the military aviation industry of Iran.

Currently, the IAIO is responsible for directing five aviation organizations: SAHA, HESA, PANHA, GHODS, Shahid Basir Industry. These five organizations have different and complementary roles in the Iranian defense industry and Iranian civil aviation, and have progressed, with the exception of Ghods, from repair and maintenance facilities to larger defence enterprises with several thousands employees.

The Iran Helicopter Support and Renewal Company (IHSRC), or PANHA, was formed in 1969, the Iranian Aircraft Industries (IACI) in 1970, and Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industries Corporation (IAMI), also known under its Persian acronym HESA, in 1974. Two other important companies, Iran Aviation Industries Organization of the Armed Forces, (also known as the Iranian Armed Forces Aviation Industries Organization (IAFAIO)), and GHODS Research Center were formed in the early 1980s.

The flag is a light blue horizontal flag with the logo ( in dark blue, in the middle, and the name of the company in Farsi and English also in black, as seen here:

Iran Aircraft Industries (IACI) or SAHA was established in 1961 as SAHA Iran Aircraft Industries and renamed Iran Aircraft Industries (IACI), with the help of German scientists mainly for maintenance and overhaul services for Iran's military helicopters and aircraft (i.e. major repair of fighter, passenger, and air support planes). Over time, SAHA became an important part of Iran’s aviation industry. In 1998, Iranian scientists and experts started designing, engineering, and manufacturing complex engine parts, airplane parts, and manufacturing turbine engines.
