Possible Presidential Honour Guards Flag

The flag is being carried by members of a row of soldiers. Its identity is unknown.

I've seen a photo of the same flag with escort captioned as 'The Honor Guard'; but I don't know whether the Honor Guard are a presidential guard unit, or something else entirely. It's not a straightforward Iranian regimental colour, which does not have the tassels at the corners, and has the national flag placed diagonally in each corner. The central device of a regimental colour appears to be a slightly less elaborate version of the one on display here. Another photo of the Honour Guard is posted here.

I've collected a few pictures of Iranian colours from a number of websites over the years - here are two involving the cavalry.

Air force colour

I've collected a few pictures of Iranian colours from a number of websites over the years - I guess this might be an air force flag based on the colour of the uniform.
