Story told by drones: how we organise light show in Yerevan

Drone show dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Armenia's independence

Yesterday, on the 21th of September, a big drone show took place in Armenia. From the formation to writing, from the state symbol to national hero — 1050 drones were telling a real story of the country emergence.

The show started with the drones forming an eagle, which is depicted on the coat of arms of Armenia. The bird, flapping its enormous wings, was welcomed with astonishment and received so thunderous ovation that music accompanying the show seemed muted. Then, at a distance sacred Mount Ararat, which is a symbol of Armenian nation, appeared.

Hayk, David of Sassoun, Mesrop Mashtots — they are three nationally acclaimed characters, and their formations also embellished the skies over Yerevan. After them drones formed the state coat of arms and flag, the logo of that spacial occasion. At the end, the quadcopters turned into the writing Հայաստան, which translates as ‘Armenia’ from Armenian.

In technical terms, that show was also special. We launched the drones from the roof — the roof of the government building in the inner city.
