Cheese, herbs and lavash (traditional bread) are the indispensable components of the Armenian table. Every Armenian longs for the traditional bread lavash in any part of the world.

Lavash is baked in toneer which is a round-shaped clay oven dug into the ground. Lavash has an oval shape and 2-3 mm thickness. Armenians use lavash to warp herbs, cheese, khorovats and other kinds of food.

Alexander Dumas was very impressed with the Armenian khorovats (BBQ) during his trip to Caucasus. He was recommending his French friends to taste it.

Lamb, veal or pork are used for cooking khorovats. The meat is specially chosen, marinated and then cooked on metal skewers.

Whole lamb or goat is stuffed with rice or cracked wheat and hung into toneer.

Armenian Flag

Theris no resemblance between the earliest Armenian flag of antiquity and today’s tricolor. The ancient flag diplayed a dragon, an eagle, or some mysterious object of the gods (sometimes a lion). With the advent of Christianity, the Aermenian kingdom adopted many different flags representing various dynasties.
When Armenia became independent, it utilized the modern Armenian tricolor. The independent Armenia’s goverment selected the colors of the last period of the Rubinian Dynasty: red, blue and yellow, in which yellow was replaced by orange.
