Flag of Artsakh

Flag of Artsakh

Hermes
The current Artsakh flag was adopted on 2 June 1992 by the Supreme Council of the self-proclaimed republic, then called Nagorno Karabakh. It is evidently based on the flag of Armenia, with the addition of a white design that aims both to recall the typical designs of local carpets, and to represent the separation from Armenia, considered as a mother state. According to the 2006 Constitution, the flag consists of three horizontal bands of equal size: the red color symbolizes the continuous struggle of the Armenian people for existence, Christianity, independence and freedom; the blue color represents the will of the Armenian people to live in peace while the orange color symbolizes the creative power and commitment of the Armenian people. Starting from the upper right corner there is a white toothed design with nine steps (four upper, four lower and a central union) that connects the last third of the flag and ends in the lower right corner. #flag #Artsakh
