Origin/meaning

The panther from the Bagratuni Coat of Arms is used, since their residency was in the Shirak region. The Arch symbolises the Aragats mountain and the church are used as elements typical to the Gyumri city nature and architecture.

According to the legend, the G. Lusavorich lantern is burning between the peaks of Aragats, which is why it is used in the arms. The Shaghul - (a tool used in architecture for accuracy) is used as a symbol of craftsmanship and punctuality.

The wheat ears symbolize silence and agriculture. The arch from the left and the right symbolizes education and the arts.
