Flag of Moldova (GIF)

The flag of Moldova (Romanian: Drapelul Moldovei) is a three-color flag consisting of three vertical blue, yellow, and red stripes with the coat of arms of Moldova on the central yellow stripe. The front and back sides of the flag are reflections of each other. The blue stripe represents the sky and the country's aspirations towards European integration and a bright future. The yellow stripe symbolizes the abundance of crops and the richness of the land, reflecting Moldova's agrarian traditions and its rich soil. The red stripe signifies the valor, hardiness, and determination of the Moldovan people in their struggle for independence. Representing the Moldovan State's continuum, the flag encapsulates its commitment to democracy, cultural heritage, equal rights, and unity among its people, encompassing the past, present, and future. The tricolor design of the flag is a nod to the historical and cultural links between Moldova and Romania, while the specific shades of the colors are derived from the Pan-Slavic tricolor, underscoring the shared heritage and cultural identity of the region.

The coat of arms of Moldova is composed of a shield divided horizontally into red and blue sections, with a prominent auroch's head displaying an eight-pointed star between its horns. Flanking the auroch's head are a five-petalled rose on the left and a slightly rotated crescent on the right, all rendered in a radiant golden (yellow) color. The shield is elegantly supported by an eagle grasping a golden cross in its beak, a green olive tree branch in its right claw, and a golden sceptre in its left claw. This emblem symbolizes the nation's historical heritage, cultural diversity, and unwavering commitment to its identity and sovereignty.
