The highest title in Armenia

National Hero of Armenia is the highest title in Armenia. The law on the title was signed by President Levon Ter-Petrosyan on 22 April 1994. It is awarded "for outstanding services of national importance to the Republic of Armenia in defense and strengthening of the state system and creation of important national values." Along with the title, its recipients receive the Order of Fatherland. It was created as the Armenian successor to the Hero of the Soviet Union award, which was abolished upon independence of Armenia.
