    Very high quality. Good job.

    • Levon Shant Levon Shant Mar 5, 2014

      Very interesting. However, I must quibble on this point: the alphabet is incorrect. The letter “Կ” is placed in the wrong position, and “Ու” is listed as a letter, as opposed to “Ւ”.

      • Sarma Sarma Mar 5, 2014

        you’re right the “Կ” is in the wrong place, however “Ու” is correct.

        This is a great infographic. Although the letter “Կ” is placed incorrectly as pointed above, the “Ու” is listed according to the Eastern Armenian orthography. Although technically not incorrect, it should be noted somewhere that this orthography is Eastern Armenian. It wouldn’t be Mashtotsian orthography either since the last two letters were added in the 12th century.

        There is no eastern Armenian orthography. Persian Armenians are east Armenian speaking but write in tradition Haykazian Orthography, Gyumri and Javakhk are west Armenian speaking under the Karno dialect and write in Apeghian Orthography. ՈՒ is vowel, «Ի» is a letter.

    Very interesting!!!!

  11. Enrique Enrique Mar 8, 2014

    Very nice. Armenians have always been talented. If there is such a thing as “the chosen ones,” really, the Armenians would take that title.

    They are few, but they are of grandest quality, thus the chosen ones.

  12. Lilit Lilit Mar 12, 2014

    ՀԻանալի է, շատ ճաշակով։ Awesome, great taste!

  13. CHEKIJIAN CHEKIJIAN Mar 15, 2014

    Great presentation. The demographics address known Armenians. Another category that should be listed and monitored are the unknown Armenians who have assimilated in the past century or two, by plan or otherwise, where some estimate that there could be as many of them (if not more) as known Armenians living today.

  14. Manuk Manuk Mar 19, 2014

    Very cool infograph!! I like it!! Minak urish asadzov darer@ harts unen bayts nranits zad shad ‘aghek’ e!!! 🙂

    Grat job guys. I will share this link among my friends to present Armenia in different trainings abroad.

    P.S. the incorrections are already mentioned. Agree with the comment to have the religion as well, a little bit about churches and current achievements, for instance Armenia is in the top of the literate countries, where 99% of the population is literate. Should be checked out from precise source though 🙂

  16. Mesrop Mesrop Mar 23, 2014

    Well done!!! one more info should have been included, the oldest shoe in the world found in Armenia!!

  17. Արտեմ Արտեմ Mar 7, 2015

    Thanks for the great site and infographics. One observation regarding the latter:
    It is more appropriate to say “two language standards” as referred to the western and eastern literature styles rather than dialects when it comes to the Armenian language. Meanwhile each of them contains huge number of dialects, perhaps Armenian is among the most dialect-rich languages in the world (you can check this assumption yourself).

    I have been reliably informed that the source of the Armenian alphabet is the ancient Ethiopic language (Ge’ez; Amharic) Both (Ethiopic and Armenian) alphabets are almost identical.

    Secondly among the places of the Armenian Diaspora, Ethiopia should be included since they came there over a century ago
