Дирафши Ковиён

Дирафши Ковиён

The flag has been a symbol of statehood, pride and honor and dignity since ancient times. It is from this that archaeological finds, weeklies, Writings and various demons that have survived to this day testify.

According to historical sources, flags have a history of more than 3-4 thousand years. The first flags appeared in China, Egypt and the Ancient Era, which are a symbol of independence and freedom, as well as peace and stability.

Flagmu dirafsh is an ancient Tajik dictionary, the name of the Turkish fortress, Livo and Alamy Arabic words. In the "Shahnameh" of the Fatherland of Abulmosim Firdavsi, it is noted that "Dirafshi Kovien" for many years was a symbol of pride of the ancient Aryan states - the Khakhomanids, Akfeyev and Soseyev.

At the same time, as in the case of women," this can lead to the fact that the whole country overnight or even if she suspects that she will not change without a good reason. He also noted that in the cities and districts of the region there is a great potential and ample opportunities for processing vegetables and fruits, as well as packaging dried fruits.

In particular, Abulkosim Firdavsi describes this definition.:

Swallow bricks and mortar,

Everyone reads "covieni dirafsh""

The Tajik people have been the flagship nation throughout history. In fact, before the foundation of the flag in its current form at the beginning of Libya, it was used as a symbol or a sign of invocation for unity and struggle, but it did not act in today's form, consisting of the described fabrics and symbols, but of various things.

Then, over time, the flag changed and received a uniform and established form.

From your green color the green of the Motherland.

A guide like you, like you forever!

The crown of that ancient heritage is upon us.

Seven akhtar seven light towers,

The red color is the blood of our ancestors.

In its whiteness is the path of white happiness,

Leads us to a hopeful future.

Our flag has become the head of the nation,

The power of the free has reached its peak.



This is a symbol of the conquest of the symbol of Koviyon and Rustam,

A guide to the city of bliss.

The pure sun of the union sky,

Light shines forever in the world of unity.

The conquest hand of the heroes is an unshakable slogan,

From you our reputation, now a perfect line.

From you came our people to the arena of peace,

Moyavar is proud of his initiative and balance.

The new Tajik peace document is a flag,

The stability of my Aryan body is a flag.
