Animated Tughra Mahmud II showing the structure of the calligraphy.

The tughra reads: "Mahmud Han bin Abdulhamid muzaffer daiman" ("Mahmud Khan son of Abdulhamid forever victorious").

Not all of the lines are colored throughout the animation. These lines were added only for decorative purposes. Some of the lines can depending on the interpretation be seen as a name, but some are only for decorative purposes to fill some empty space between other lines.

See Image:Tugra Mahmuds II.png for a non-animated, high resolution version or Image:Tughra Mahmud II.svg for the vector data.

Deutsch: Animierte Tughra Mahmuds II, die die Struktur der Kalligrafie zeigt.

Die Tugra bedeutet: "Mahmud Han bin Abdulhamid muzaffer daiman" ("Mahmud Khan, Sohn des Abdulhamid ewig siegreich").

Nicht alle Linien werden während der Animation eingefärbt. Diese Linien wurden nur zu dekorativen Zwecken eingefügt. Einige der Linien können je nach Interpretation auch als Name gesehen werden, aber einige sollen nur den leeren Raum zwischen anderen Linien aus dekorativen Gründen füllen.
