Символы Армении
Гора Арарат
Арарат является, пожалуй, самым главным символом Армении. Согласно Библии, Ноев ковчег после Всемирного Потопа, примкнул к горе Арарат, откуда возникла новая жизнь.
Хачкар
Хачкар является символом Армении. Предки хачкаров, вишапы, существовали ещё со времен существования государства Урарту, а самый древний армянских хачкар датирован 879 годом и хранится в храме Гарни. Распространённость хачкаров в разных регионах мира свидетельствует о величине и истории Древней Армении.
Армянский дудук
Дудук является армянским народным музыкальным инструментом. Является одним из древнейших инструментов в мире. Дудук традиционно изготавливается из абрикосового дерева.
Абрикос
Абрикос у армян с древних времён считался традиционным для выращивания растением и отображал природу Армянского нагорья.
Виноград
Согласно библейскому преданию, Ной, выйдя из ковчега, посадил виноградную лозу и затем изготовил вино. Виноград у армян символизирует изобилие и жизнерадостность.
Гранат
Гранат у армян символизирует плодородие и богатство, так как в Армении гранатовые деревья увешаны плодами круглый год

Welcome to Armenia

#Petroglyphs of Ughtasar
#Armenia has a wealth of fascinating rock art, little known or understood but worthy of wider domestic and international recognition. Rock art is one of the most important and direct ways of linking our modern world to that of our remote ancestors. We can never hope, of course, to fully understand the complex meanings of the signs and symbols but the carved figures provide enticing clues to the perceptions and concerns of their creators several thousand years ago.
Ughtasar is a major rock art site located in the caldera of an extinct volcano in the Syunik Mountains of southern Armenia. In a spectacular landscape bounded by a rim of craggy peaks and rounded hills the site is home to almost a thousand carved rocks bearing abstract and figurative motifs pecked millennia ago onto the surfaces of basalt boulders disgorged long before as streams of lava. At 3300 metres above sea level the site is snowbound for nearly nine months of the year yet supports a rich and varied ecosystem of flora and fauna including bears, wolves, foxes and wild boar.
#The Ughtasar Rock Art Project, initiated in 2009, involves a systematic survey of the petroglyphs and other archaeological features, in their immediate landscape context. The main aim of the project’s largely self-funded team is to seek a deeper understanding of the significance of Ughtasar to the people who created the petroglyphs and of the ways in which they ‘marked’ the landscape of this unique place within Armenia’s rich cultural and archaeological heritage. The project is using both traditional and innovative methods of recording, analysis and interpretation and brings together archaeologists, art historians and other specialists from Armenia, the UK, Japan and the USA, together with an enthusiastic group of Armenian students and volunteers.
There is an urgent need to document and protect the site. Many of the carvings are eroding in the harsh climatic conditions, exacerbated in recent years by visitors walking over some of the fragile carved surfaces. Attempts must be made to forestall further damage to the petroglyphs and to the delicate balance of the rich ecosystem within the caldera.

APRICOT is a fruit or the tree that bears the fruit of several species in the genus Prunus (stone fruits). Usually, an apricot tree is from the species P. armeniaca, but the species P. brigantina, P. mandshurica, P. mume, and P. sibirica are closely related, have similar fruit, and are also called apricots.
The origin of the apricot is disputed. It was known in Armenia during ancient times, and has been cultivated there for so long that it is often thought to have originated there. Its scientific name Prunus armeniaca (Armenian plum) derives from that assumption. For example, the Belgian arborist baron de Poerderlé, writing in the 1770s, asserted, "Cet arbre tire son nom de l'Arménie, province d'Asie, d'où il est originaire et d'où il fut porté en Europe ..." ("this tree takes its name from Armenia, province of Asia, where it is native, and whence it was brought to Europe ..."). An archaeological excavation at Garni in Armenia found apricot seeds in an Eneolithic-era site.Despite the great number of varieties of apricots that are grown in Armenia today (about 50), according to the Soviet botanist Nikolai Vavilov its center of origin would be the Chinese region, where the domestication of apricot would have taken place. Other sources say that the apricot was first cultivated in India in about 3000 BC.
Its introduction to Greece is attributed to Alexander the Great; later, the Roman General Lucullus (106–57 BC) also would have imported some trees – the cherry, white heart cherry, and apricot – from Armenia to Rome.[citation needed] Subsequent sources were often confused about the origin of the species. John Claudius Loudon (1838) believed it had a wide native range including Armenia, the Caucasus, the Himalayas, China, and Japan.
Apricots have been cultivated in Persia since antiquity, and dried ones were an important commodity on Persian trade routes. Apricots remain an important fruit in modern-day Iran, where they are known under the common name of zard-ālū (Persian: زردآلو).
Egyptians usually dry apricots, add sweetener, and then use them to make a drink called amar al-dīn.
In the 17th century, English settlers brought the apricot to the English colonies in the New World. Most of modern American production of apricots comes from the seedlings carried to the west coast by Spanish missionaries. Almost all U.S. commercial production is in California, with some in Washington and Utah.
Apricots are also cultivated in Australia, particularly South Australia, where they are commonly grown in the region known as the Riverland and round the small town of Mypolonga in the Lower Murray region of the state. In states other than South Australia, apricots are still grown, particularly in Tasmania and western Victoria and southwest New South Wales, but they are less common than in South Australia.
Today, apricot cultivation has spread to all parts of the globe with climates that support it.
