Design rationale

On a round Persian Shield, surrounded by the Wreath of the Royal Standards of Qajar, is the picture of the Lion and Sun, which was the official emblem and ancient symbol of the Royal Houses of Qajar and their ancestors, the Safavids. The two sections of the shield are separated by the guarding top visor of a castle which symbolizes the guardianship of the two dynasties. The upper field is Royal Golden and in its center is the Imperial Crown of Qajar, designed as ordered by the armiger’s 4th great grandfather, King Fath-Ali-Shah (the second King of Qajar). On the crown’s left is the 9-point star symbolizing the 9th king of the Safavid dynasty, the King Sultan Hoseyn, who is Qajar's ancestral link to the Safavid dynasty (the grandfather to the first King of Qajar) in their banner color, Green. The 9-point star on the right depicts the 9 Grand Dukes and Kings of Qajar in their clan’s banner color, Red. The Persian Helm is placed above the shield and the Royal Lion in the crest holds the 10-point Princely Star of the Order of Lion and Sun, as used exclusively by Qajar princely families.

The armiger's direct paternal line is listed below. Except for the first and second king of the Safavid dynasty, they all used insignia of Lion and Sun. This usage was consistent until the last king of Qajar, and then was adopted by the next dynasty, the Pahlavi's.
