Kiani Concept’s best selling scarf is without doubt The Pahlavi Coat of Arms scarf. Crafted from the finest 100% pure silk, in stunning traditional azure- the colour of the Imperial family, a beautiful design available also as a silk handkerchief, for both men and woman to wear and use with pride. As well as being visually stunning, and incredibly evocative, the coat of arms on this scarf has real meaning. Designed in 1932 and revised in 1971; The Pahlavi coat of arms, those of the present Shahanshah, which occupy the centre of the scarf, contains in itself; something of a history of Persia. The centre of the circular shield depicts a sun rising behind Mount Damavand. The country’s highest mountain and the same motif occurs again in the insignia of the order of Pahlavi, Persia’s highest decoration, which is suspended below the Arms. At the top of the shield, to the right, is the winged figure of Ahuramazda, Wise Lord and Supreme God of the Achaemenians and beneath appears a Simurgh, amythical bird popular as a symbol of good fortune with the Sassanians (AD224-642). Top left in the shield is the Lion and Sun, the emblem of Persia and beneath, symbolizing Islam is Dhu’l Figar, the sword of Ali, the First Imam. The Pahlavi Crown surmounts the shield which is supported by Persian lions.
The imperial motto reads “He commanded me to be just and He is Himself the Judge”.
