The coat of arms of Armenia is a powerful emblem rich in symbolism and historical significance. At its center, a shield is adorned with distinct elements that echo the nation's storied past. The lion bearing a cross stands as the emblem of the Bagratuni and Rubenid dynasties, two influential forces in Armenian history, while the two-headed eagle symbolizes the Arsacid dynasty, underscoring its historical importance. Two eagles facing each other represent the Artaxiad dynasty, reinforcing Armenia's ancient lineage and dynastic traditions. This emblem is further strengthened by its supporters, an eagle and a lion, which symbolize the earliest Armenian kingdoms that thrived prior to the Common Era, collectively encapsulating the enduring spirit and historical legacy of the Armenian nation.
