Who and what are depicted on the upgraded banknotes?

On the upgraded lari banknotes different portraits of the persons depicted on initial banknotes have been used, as well as individual elements of design have been changed, which makes the banknotes more modern.

Moreover, taking into account the fact that the banknotes of the lowest denominations have no longer been produced, in order to retain their themes, the theme of 1 lari denomination has been reflected in the design of the back side of the upgraded 5-lari banknote while the theme of 2 lari denomination has been reflected in the design of the back side of the upgraded 100 lari banknote.
