Flag of Romania

Ufuk Zivana © 2006
The Romanian flag consists of three vertical colors - blue, yellow, and red. The colors symbolize three Romanian provinces - Transylvania, Þara Româneascã, and Moldova. The flag was officially adopted by Romania in 1994, though the symbolic colors have a history that dates back to the 6th century.

Moldova's flag is similar in that it contains the same three colors as the Romanian flag. However, Moldova's flag features the country's coat of arms.
