About the flag

بنیاد شهید و امور ایثارگران (English: Foundation of Martyrs (of the Islamic Revolution) and Martyr's Affairs) is is a state-funded government office in Iran that is responsible for dealing with the affairs of the Martyrs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martyrdom_in_Iran#Revolution) and Martyrs' families, such as home loans to Disabled Veterans and the families of the Martyrs. This institution has a legal personality and financial and administrative autonomy and its affairs are governed by the rules and regulations of the public non-governmental organizations and are governed by the statute of the law and the relevant regulations under the supervision of the President and the Supreme Leader of the Supreme Council. The head of the foundation is appointed by the Supreme Leader, as the representative of the Supreme Leader and with the presidential decree as head of the foundation for four years.

The idea of establishing such an institution dates back to the June 5, 1964 demonstrations (Persian calendar year 1342) where a group of militant clerics was considering the aid of families of the victims of such demonstration afterwards. The organization was established as بنیاد شهید انقلاب اسلامی (English: Islamic Revolutionary Martyr Foundation), on March 12, 1980 to address the situation of the martyrs' families, as well as to address the issues of the disabled and the victims of the Islamic Revolution. On 1997 several measures were approved and entered into effect in 1998, according to the Decree of the Supreme Leaderas well as the Resolution of the Supreme Administrative Council, the plan for the integration of the martyr's institutions in a unified structure was approved by the government, and thus the Islamic Revolution Martyr Foundation was renamed to the Martyrs 'and Martyrs' Affairs, by merging the three existing organizations, which were:
- بنیاد شهید انقلاب (English: Foundation (of the) Islamic Revolutionary Martyrs)
- سازمان جانبازان انقلاب اسلامی (English: Organization of Veterans of the Islamic Revolution)
- ستاد رسیدگی به امور تأسیس شده و دارای (English: Directorate for (the) Revolutionary Guards Disabled and Revolutionary Guards Disabled Affairs)
