Color-of-Flag Day, Oct. 1
Dress in any combination of Green-White-Red in honor of Iran's flag!
When: Oct. 1, 2023
Who: Students, Parents, and Teachers
What: A tradition since 2008, Color-of-Flag Day at CPS has been a symbolic gesture of respect for the flag and Iranian heritage.
Students, parents, and teachers are encouraged to include colors of the Iranian flag in their outfits. This is an optional activity and no one should feel obligated.
Students will learn about the meaning of each color in Iran's flag during class time and do related activities.
This is the closest Sunday to the "Mehregan" celebration, the "National Day of Love" in the Iranian calendar.
We prefer that actual flags are NOT brought to the school.
