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.
