Golfarang is the Farsi word for "flower bouquet". Golfarang is a combination of original designs and realist flowers employed in a mixture of deep bright colors particularly the red hues. Usually, the flowers contained in the bouquet are roses, with the tallest flower in the center reaching up towards the top of the arch - a variation of the tree-of-life design. The English introduced roses to Persians and Persian speaking areas of the subcontinent. From then on, carpets with the Golfarang design were not only found in Imperial courtyards but also in the area gardens and homes of Persian royalty. Golfarang rugs include the following subgroups: Red flower "Golsorkh" (quarter medallion), Golfarang Bijar, Golfarang Mostofi, Golfarang Torangedar, etc.
