The Order of Pahlavi of the Empire of Persia, in Persian: "Neshan-e Pahlavi" was the highest Persian Order of knighthood. The Order was instituted in 1932 by Rezā Shāh, the founder of the Dynasty of the Pahlavi, and it was awarded in two degrees. The order was abolished after the fall of the last Shah.

The decorations include a golden collar with blue and gold links, the jewel of the order hanging from a broad ribbon and a star on the breast.

The badge is a precious jewel made in the shape of a cross with imperial crowns as arms. In the space between the arms golden and blue rays are placed. In the central medallion, Mount Damavand is depicted with a rising sun behind it. The star is the same as the jewel.

The Second Class of the Order bears a jewel with links between the crowns.

The ribbon was blue with a gold rim.
