In tribute to the country symbolized by Mount Ararat that has become the new dawn of humanity. To the people who were the first to embrace Christianity in 301 and who were the first to be crucified in 1915-1923, falling victim to the first genocide of the 20th Century perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire by the Young Turks-led government. For the glory of newly reborn Armenia, whose sons and daughters yet believe in justice.
