Flag of Moldova

Flag of Moldova

The flag of Moldova consists of a vertical tricolor of blue, yellow and red stripes. This base is identical to the flag of Romania, however, in the middle of the yellow stripe, a Moldovan national emblem is placed. It depicts a golden eagle holding a golden cross in its beak, an olive branch in one talon and a scepter in the other. The eagle holds a shield where a bison's head is displayed - it should denote strength, independence and pride of the Moldovan nation. Until 2010, the national emblem was used on the face side of the flag only, so the flag of Moldova belonged to the few flags with different sides. At the present time, there is a mirror version of national emblem on the reverse side.
