Azg (, "Nation") is a daily newspaper published in Yerevan, Armenia since 1991.

The newspaper was prominent during the 1990s. Published by the Democratic Liberal Party of Armenia (Ramkavar-Azatakan) Party—financed from the Armenian diaspora party ADL—its circulation regularly exceeded 30,000 by 1993. According to Edik Baghdasaryan, Azg served as "a good school for many journalists" during this period.

In 1996, the newspaper was temporarily suspended by the government of Levon Ter-Petrosyan. Its office was ransacked, and editors and journalists were beaten. The ownership of the newspaper was transferred to a newly-split pro-government branch of the Ramkavar Party. After Ter-Petrosyan’s resignation as president, the newspaper was supportive of Robert Kocharyan who became president in 1998. In 1999, it was described as Armenia’s "most authoritative daily." The circulation of Azg was 3,000 as of 2003 and remained the same as of 2009.

Since 1999 Azg has been available online in four languages: Armenian, Russian, English, and Turkish.

Its founder and editor-in-chief is the veteran Lebanese-born Ramkavar activist Hakob Avedikian. In the 1980s, he served as the editor-in-chief of Zartonk daily in Lebanon.
