The flag of the Shah was a square blue flag with a centered crown (of the same design as in the coat of arms) with a small square canton in the upper left corner including the national flag with the coat of arms.

Marcus Wendel & Ivan Sache, 15 September 1999

In Flaggenbuch, the size of the imperial Standard is given as 124 x 124 cm, with square canton of 21 cm.

Imperial standard (second version)

[Persian imperial standard]by Santiago Tazon

A more recent version of the imperial standard is shown on Farah Pahlavi's website, which says:

The Imperial standard consists of a pale-blue field with the official flag in the upper left corner and the Pahlavi coat of arms in the centre. At the top of the coat of arms is the Pahlavi crown, created for the Coronation of Reza Shah the Great in 1926. Beneath is the Imperial motto:
Mara dad farmud va Khod Davar Ast (Justice He bids me do, As He will judge me).

Pale blue is the colour of the Imperial Family.
