    Flag of Armenia

  • 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).

What are Aspects of the Armenian Culture?

Armenia has been occupied by neighboring empires throughout much of its history. As such, time and time again the culture faced threat of extinction or assimilation into other dominant cultures. However, with the establishment of the Armenian Republic in the wake of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, there were reasons for renewed confidence in the sustainability of one of the oldest extant cultures of our world. Armenian language and literature is being vigorously promoted among new first language speakers, both at home and across the global Armenian population. Still, the unique language faces a threat of language disintegration abroad.
