The aim of presenting this article is to study the origin of symbols so called Botteh and Jeghgheh in Iranian culture. Some people are of the opinion that the root of these symbols can be traced to an Indian plant called Botiya and as such link Botteh and Jeghgheh with India and its culture, while others believe that these symbols are purer Persian and existed in ancient Iran prior to the age and reign of the Sakas, and from here it spread to the other countries of the world.
