Flag of Andorra

Flag of Andorra

The flag of the tiny country Andorra, which is situated in the mountains between France and Spain, was adopted in 1866. Andorra was jointly managed for many years by Spain and France. The cooperation was cancelled in 1993, when the country gained independence and became a modern parliamentary democracy. The flag is composed of a vertical tricolor of blue, yellow, and red stripe and a yellow coat of arms in the middle of the yellow stripe. One half of the coat of arms refers to the ties with Spain, whereas the second points to relations to France. Miter and crutches in the upper left quarter of the coat of arms are sign of Spanish bishop and two red cows at the bottom right should commemorate the French province of Bearn.
