Tehran University

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.
