    My dad said they use to wear the blue every once in a while back then. Something to do with it being the Shah's favorite color.

    This is pretty much the squad which appeared in the 1972 Olympics in Munich.

    Standing from right Marhoom Nasser Hejazi, Karo Haghverdian, Ehrahim Ashtiaini, Majid Halvaii, Moustapha Arab

    Sitting from right Parviz Ghelichkhani, ??, Asghar Sharafi, Marhoom Safar Iranpak, Ali Parvin, Homayoun Behzadi

    I think it's from 1971 Jam-e Beynolmelali-ye Kourosh-e Bozorg.

    I guess Blue being Pahlavi Dynasty's favourite colour was used for this ceremonial friendly tournament. Otherwise All-White or Tricolor (Green,White,Red) were used for official matches for ACQ, WCQ, Asian Games, Olympic Games, World Cup. Umm in 1977 Iran started wearing Red and White as well

    it wasn't their favorite color, but rather the color of the house of Pahlavi (and the court's flag; the royal imperial flag) 1.jpg

    If I remember correctly Iran also wore blue back in the early 90s.
