A black flag with the anarchist symbol could be seen at the Armenian National Congress (HAK) rally on Friday, Sept. 30. A little while later, the flag was lowered.
The flag was brought and carried by artist and member of the Art-Laboratoria group Karen Ohanyan. Speaking to Epress.am, Ohanyan said that a senior HAK representative had approached and asked him to lower the flag.
“I asked, why? They went up on the stage, consulted with someone, returned and asked what our flag symbolizes. I told them. They said that that contradicts their principles,” said Ohanyan.
