The Imperial Iranian Navy was named Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN)
after 1979. It was established in 1923 originally.
The flag is a white horizontal flag with the logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Republic_of_Iran_Navy#mediaviewer/File:IRI.Navy_Seal.svg) in the middle, with a black border with an Arabic inscription and four stylized Perso-Arabic script of the Arabic word Allah ("God") in gold, as seen here:
