Flag of Romania

Flag of Romania

The Romanian flag consists of tricolor of vertical stripes - dark blue one, yellow one and red one. These colors, characteristic of Moldavia and Wallachia, appeared in 1834 for the first time. The flag is very similar to the flag of Chad with the difference that Chad´s blue stripe is darker. During several periods, there was a national coat of arms in the center of the flag. Romania was a long time under the domination of the Soviet Union and, moreover, under the baton of the Ceausescu the regime was very close to tyranny. Ceausescu was overthrown and executed in 1989 and people began to prefer the flag without the coat of arms as an expression of resistance against the previous regime. Shortly after, this version of the flag was adopted officially.
