Eagle + Armenian Highlands + Armenian Angels + Little Dragon + Lion = Unapologetically Armenian
EACH CHARM IS UNIQUELY ARMENIAN:
Eagles are symbols of wisdom, power, and generosity, which is why they are an Armenian heraldic symbol and part of Artsakh's coat of arms.
Our Armenian Highlands charm corresponds to the regions that indigenous Armenians and their predecessors the Uratians have inhabited for millennia, including Western Armenia + Eastern Armenia + Nakhichevan + Javakhk + Artsakh.
Armenian Angels symbolize the community of women who were and are the pillars of Armenian life. They represent the eternal force that enables us to not only survive, but thrive, rebuild, and create.
The Dragon (or "Vishap" | Վիշապ) in Armenian mythology is the spirit of water and wealth. Believed to be related to ancient water and fertility worship in proto-Armenian culture, monuments of dragons ("Vishapakar" | Վիշապաքար, literally a "dragon stone") were stationed near water sources, such as mountain springs and ponds, where they offered protection.
Lions are symbols of power, might, and bravery, which is why they were chosen for the family crests of several Armenian royal houses, including the Bagratuni and the Sumbatians.
