Administrative division

Armenia is divided into ten provinces (marzer, singular marz), with the city of Yerevan having special administrative status as the country's capital.

Within each province are communities (hamaynkner, singular hamaynk). Each community is self-governing and consists of one or more settlements (bnakavayrer, singular bnakavayr). Settlements are classified as either towns (kaghakner, singular kaghak) or villages (gyugher, singular gyugh).

As of 2007, Armenia includes 915 communities, of which 49 are considered urban and 866 are considered rural. The capital, Yerevan, also has the status of a community. Additionally, Yerevan is divided into twelve semi-autonomous districts.

Heraldry

Armenia has no heraldic tradition, therefore only a few towns have a proper coat of arms, and none of the provinces has any.
