The flag of the Iranian National-socialist Workers Party' (SOMKA or SUMKA, from the acronym of Hezb-e Sosialist-e Melli-ye Kargaran-e Iran in Farsi language) was a Nazi-like flag with a stylized eagle in the middle but I don't know the meaning of this. This party was a very small organization involved in politics during the beginning of the 1950s but it disappeared very quickly. The party was opposed to Mosadegh's democratic governement(1950-1953) and exposed a strong neo-nazi ideology. Its leader was Davud Monshizadeh. I have also a picture that show a meeting of the party in which the armband with party logo is clearly visible.
