World Civic Heraldry Guide: coats of arms and flags of cities, regions, states
The flag of the Republic of Armenia was confirmed on August 23rd 1990 by the Armenian Supreme Counsel. It is identical to the first State flag of the Republic of Armenia (1918-1920). The flag consists of three equal horizontal stripes of red, blue and orange. Proportions are 1:2. Each color has its own meaning and significance:
Red - Stands for the blood our brave ancestors shed on the battle fields, fighting the enemy and sacrificing their lives to save the Armenian nation from annihilation, ensure their freedom to practice the Christian faith, and up-hold the sovereignty and independence of Mother-Land Armenia.
Blue - Stands for the color of the sky and its reflection onto the waters of the rivers and lakes that give life to this magnificent country of ours – Armenia.
Orange - Stands for the natural resources and wealth of this rich country, and the industrious nature of the Armenian people.
