The King Trdat's flag, 301-330

There is no resemblance between the earliest Armenian flag of antiquity and today's tricolor. The ancient flag displayed a dragon, an eagle, or some mysterious object of the gods (sometimes a lion). With the advent of Christianity, the Armenian kingdom adopted many different flags representing various dynasties.
When Armenia became independent, it utilized the modern Armenian tricolor. The independent Armenia's government selected the colors of the last period of the Rubinian Dynasty: red, blue, and yellow, in which yellow was replaced by orange.
