SOCAR is the State Oil Company. This could explain the tower's design.

Information about design from Heerim's website:

Idea 1: Dynamically burning fire, the signature image of Azerbaijan, is the symbol of continuous, high-speed growth.

Idea 2: Fire is generated through a chain reaction of air, fuel, and heat. These three factors, the Fire Triangle, are inevitable factors in life.

Idea 3: The flow of energy. The Fire Triangle reacts endlessly with the flow of energy, and is to be replaced with major spatial construction factors of the New Management Office of the SOCAR, involving themes of ecological void, programmed layers, and dynamic movement.

Idea 4: Through the chain reaction of three spatial construction factors, the symbolic fire of SOCAR will become more activated, and Azerbaijan’s future vision will be presented in greater light.
