Flag of the Republic of Artsakh (GIF)

The flag of the Republic of Artsakh (Armenian: Արցախի դրոշ), derived from the Armenian flag, incorporates a prominent white five-pronged stepped carpet pattern on the right side, symbolizing the mountains of Armenian Artsakh and signifying the region's distinct cultural and historical identity. Additionally, the arrow created by the white pattern pointing westward represents the shared aspiration for ultimate reunification with Armenia. The triangular shape and zigzag cut underscore Artsakh's status as a separate region from Armenia. The design resembling patterns found on traditional rugs serves as a powerful symbol of national identity, reflecting the deep cultural heritage and resilience of the Artsakh people.

The coat of arms of Artsakh prominently features an eagle with its wings gracefully outstretched, adorned with the crown of the Artaxiad dynasty. A divided shield on the eagle's chest portrays the panoramic view of the Bolshoy Kirs Mountain and the Karabakh Ridge in the upper segment, while the lower segment presents a vertical representation of the Nagorno-Karabakh flag. At the center of the shield stands the iconic monument "We are our Mountains" in Stepanakert, the capital of Artsakh, symbolizing the region's rich cultural and historical legacy. The eagle, clutching agricultural produce such as wheat, grapes, and mulberries, signifies the region's fertility and agricultural abundance. Encircling the eagle is a golden ribbon inscribed with "Nagorno-Karabakh Republic — Artsakh" in Armenian script, solidifying the region's identity and historical significance.
