The apricot is one of the symbols of Armenia.

Apricots were known in Armenia during ancient times, and have been cultivated here for so long that it is believed to have originated in Armenia. Apricot seeds were found during an archaeological excavation at Garni. Many scientists suggest that Alexander the Great took apricots from Armenia to Greece, thus introducing them to the Mediterranean region.
But there are other theories which deny that Armenia is the homeland of apricot, and state that it originates from India and China. Despite the disagreements over origin, no one can reject the fact that apricots that grow in Armenia are quite different from those that grow in other countries. And you will never find real Armenian apricots growing outside the borders of Armenia.
Legend has it that the apricot tree is the only tree that Noah brought down from the Ark and planted it in the new soil. The Great Flood destroyed many fruit trees, however, the apricot survived it
