  • Coat of Arms: Armenia's coat of arms was adopted on April 19, 1992.

    It consists of an eagle and lion holding onto a shield, with the shield itself being divided into five sections.

    The center section depicts Noah's Ark sitting on top of Mount Ararat, and within the surrounding sections are symbols of old Armenian dynasties.

    Below the shield rest five elements: a sword (for power and strength), a broken chain (for independence), wheat (for their hard working nature), a feather (for intellectual and cultural heritage) and a ribbon (for the flag).
