This flag dates from the period since the creation of the Islamic Republic in
1979, as can be seen from the version of the Iranian National Flag used in this
institutional flag. The university was founded at the beginning of the 20th
Century, although it was not until the 1920s that it began to grow and develop.
Since the abolition of the name 'Persia', the university has undergone a number
of name changes; University of Teheran has remained more or less constant, but
the modifying adjectives have included Imperial, Pahlavi, Persian, and a number
of others. I am not sure if the university is presently known as the Islamic
University or not.
