Armenia

The current flag of Armenia was adopted on August 24, 1990.  The flag consists of three horizontal bands of equal width coloured red, blue and orange.  The red symbolizes the Armenian Highland and the struggle for survival, maintenance of the Christian faith and Armenia`s Independence and freedom.  The blue represents the people and their will to live under peaceful skies.  The orange stands for the creative and hard working customs of the Armenian people.  There have been throughout history several variations of the Armenian flag from different dynasties in ancient times to different verities during Soviet control in the 20th century.
