The emblem of the Pan-Armenian Games was approved by the World Constitutive Conference of Armenian athletic organizations of the world on 30 April 1997. The emblem depicts six multicolored intertwines rings. The five rings repeat the colors of the Olympic ones, and the sixth is of apricot color symbolizing Armenia.

Drafts flags of Armenia
In 1999, on his web site Raffi Kojayan offered to make the flag of Armenia less similar to other tricolors, and also more impressive.
His offer was to add narrow white stripes to the flag to divide the three wider ones. The white color would symbolize snowy tops of Ararat. However, there was only talk, and no action.
There is a draft of the flag of Armenia designed by artist Mikhail Asatur Kanayan on the website http://www.noev-kovcheg.ru. to the traditional Armenian tricolor he has added a Christian cross in the middle of which he has depicted the mountains of Ararat, Noah’s Ark, the rainbow, a heart. This is how the author himself explains the symbols:
“I have written on the topic in the forum miacum.ru. But some new information has been available since then. I must note that the main colors of Armenian flags have always been, and still are, blue, yellow and red; the main subjects on coats of arms have been the lion and the eagle (artsiv) – basic Indo-European totems.
