In this research we tried to investigate the national identity symbols in the secondary school textbooks. The national identity symbols investigated in this study included the flag, the national anthem, formal calendar, national parties, Iranian art, historical places, defending the country, elites and the national celebrities.
The result shows that national identity education in the above mentioned textbooks was incomplete and there was not a balanced attention to national identity symbols among the lessons, pages and pictures of these textbooks Because education system, other than the family has an important role in developing the students’characters, and textbooks constitute the base of school works, so it is necessary to pay more attention to national identity symbols in these textbooks to gradually develop the students national identity.
