The Derafsh Kāviān (Middle Persian: Drafš-ī Kāvayān, Modern Persian: درفش کاویانی Derafš-e Kāviān) was the legendary royal standard (vexilloid) of the Sasanian kings. The banner was also sometimes called the "Standard of Jamshid" (Drafš-e Jamshid), the "Standard of Fereydun" (Drafš-e Freydun), and the "Royal Standard" (Drafš-e Kayi).

[quote=thar]Again with the mysterious disappearing and reappearing Iceland!

There is a myth in Ireland (and Great Britain sometimes) about a island which appears and disappears - The Blessed Isles or Tír na nÓg (Isles of youth).

Maybe Iceland's in the running . . .

Some of the potential designs submitted for the Icelandic flag in 1914. From an exhibition just opened in the Icelandic embassy in Denmark.

(For why tge design chosen referenced Norwegian origins, not the Danish flag, see Greenland joke above. Whistle )


No offence Denmark, but...
