I first came up with the idea for the t-shirt logo as an undergraduate at UC Berkeley back in 2003 and I’ve been meaning to put it online ever since. I simply grew tired of Iranians calling themselves “Persians” or lying to people about where they came from, i.e. Italy, Greece, Spain, etc.Thus, the purpose of the shirt was two fold:

1. To tell fellow Iranians, “hey, if I’m not embarrassed about being Iranian, nor should you be.”

2. We are Iranians from Iran, not from “Persia” – the Greek name for Iran.

In other words, I made the shirt to promote the Iranian identity in the diaspora.
