A reflection of Armenian diaspora, the Homenetmen organization is a Pan-Armenian Athletics & Scouting society, founded 16 Nov.1918 in Constantinople (mod. Istanbul, Turkey).

Its 1st Executive Committee sat 1 month later.

The global organization celebrated its Centenary in 2018
The badge used by @Homenetmen_BFC is derived from the movement's flag and uses the Armenian characters of "ՀՄԸՄ" (these being the initial letters from the organization's full name), which can be transliterated as 'HMYM' into Roman characters.

@KenDoucette @JohnFrassica @WETV_WHS
The Armenian original,
with <transliterations> & [translations]
can be approximately interpreted as follows:

Հայ <Hay>
[= Armenian]

[= body culture/Phys.Ed. or Athletic]

[= General]

Միութիւն <Miut’iwn>
[= Association]

The flag-bearer is Vazken Andréassian, a mere 15 years old at that time, 3 years after the 1915 exile of his family from their home.

He moved into the city after Armistice.
From his personal collection
Under Turkish pressure he was Deported to France, out of the dissolving Othman Empire.

He then set up a Homenetmen Chapter at Marseilles in 1924, aged just 21.

Later, he designed airplane prototypes for French Government-owned "Arsenal de l'Aéronautique"
